Old Floral Fireplace No_4002

Love spotting forms when you’re out and about that look just like something you might make – this detail from an old fireplace with its arts and crafts leaf shapes and curls – reminds me of my frond leaf elements.

My eye is always on the look-out for inspiration, its an automatic reflex these days. I found this fireplace on a trip out with the kids at the Ulster Folk & Transport Museum in N.Ireland – we’ve been there many times before and I haven’t seen this fireplace hidden away in one of the rooms!

Curly florals – my favourites! This reminds me of the years I spent at Glasgow School of Art surrounded by the fabulous design elements of Charles Rennie Mackintosh!
