I don't know about you but I have a variety of containers on my desks to hold stuff. Tins, glass jars holders from desk sets.
The middle desk
It wasn't until I started to photograph these that I realised how much stuff I have around the place.
The computer desk
The cutting table.
What I had been looking at was the end desk where I sit and embroider and do my hand drawing. Here I have been using the plastic water containers I use when doing water colours.
Everytime I want to paint I have to put this stuff somewhere else and I loose it. So, I decided I needed a new container. Something that spoke of where I live and I found it in a hand woven basket by Jackie Cresswell.
I often run into Jackie out in the bush. She goes into places I wouldn't go to collect her vines for weaving. I'm too afraid I will run into a snake.
So now I have a new container. I really must look at rationalizing all the others.
