I’ve been playing some more with pohutukawa leaves. It took me a couple of days to arrive at this image. Besides finding the odd red leaf amongst the ample green, I also discovered a few yellow ones. The light green leaves in the centre are the new growth, and the darker green ones around the outside are from previous years.

I try and tune into the materials I’m working with, to see how they would like to be arranged. These leaves definitely wanted to point their way outward. I like their brilliance against the wet black iron sand, and was pleased with the finishing touch of the silver fern leaves, which continue the outward movement of the star.
