“The gorgeous, sage-green fruit of the Coastal Banksia tree is incredibly beautiful. Velvety little seed pods nestle into the stem, like flying saucers docked on the mother ship. Their random arrangement and plump, curved forms create a fascinating sculpture that begs to be drawn.
I pocketed this piece on a bush-walk, and was grateful to the Black Cockatoos feeding above for snapping it off to land at my feet! A gift because these ripe fruit pods are often way out of reach and don’t fall until dried out and empty.”
