Art forms in nature millinery collection

My summer collection is based on drawings by Professor Ernst Haeckel. He undertook many ocean voyages in the nineteenth century where he brought back hundreds of drawings and watercolours of natural forms such as shells and fossils.

In my work I have tried to capture the delicacy and detail of his drawings by using wire to create shell and fossil-like shapes. I advise anyone to have a look at 'Art Forms in Nature' by Ernst Haeckel - you will be amazed by his beautiful drawings.
