a group of houseplantsHaving owned houseplants for over seven years and in that time accumulating well over 100 plants in my collection, I have gradually learned how to care for them and in doing so witnessed their remarkable growth. This hobby has undeniably influenced my work, and it is a prominent feature in many of the products I have created over the years.

I am always in awe of plants and consider them to be magical. From their ability to propagate, to their vibrant colours and resilience, they captivate us with their remarkable qualities. I want to explore the magic of plants and how they nurture our spaces, reconnect us with the natural world, and continue to surprise us.


One of the best qualities of plants is their ability to be propagated. Through various methods such as seeds, cuttings, or division, they can multiply and create new life, showcasing their impressive cycle of growth and renewal.

Nurturing spaces and our well-being

Plants have a profound impact on our surroundings, transforming spaces into nurturing havens. Whether in our homes, offices, or outdoor gardens, their presence brings a sense of tranquillity, purifies the air we breathe, and contributes to our overall well-being.

Nature's palette

Plants adorn our world with beautiful colours. From the delicate pastels to the vibrant hues, their blossoms and foliage bring joy and wonder. Their captivating colours remind us of the beauty that exists all around us.


Plants exhibit remarkable resilience in the face of adversity. They adapt to different environments, endure harsh conditions, and bounce back from challenges. Their ability to persevere and thrive inspires us, reminding us of our own inner strength.

Natural dyeing

Plants hold a secret power in their pigments, allowing us to extract natural dyes. Their pigments can transform fabrics and fibres, creating a range of wonderful colours. From the vibrant yellows of turmeric to the rich purples of elderberries, the art of plant-based dyeing is a magical process that connects us with ancient traditions and the wonders of colour creation.


Through the miraculous process of photosynthesis, plants convert sunlight, water, and nutrients into life-sustaining energy and oxygen, shaping the very foundation of our ecosystems. Their ability to harness the power of the sun is truly magical and is essential for our existence.

Reconnecting with nature

In a fast-paced and technology-driven world, plants offer a gateway to reconnect with the natural world. Tending to a garden, cultivating houseplants, or simply spending time in nature reminds us of our connection to the Earth, grounding us, and providing solace in its simplicity and beauty.

Plants possess many enchanting qualities that make them truly magical. They propagate, dazzle us with their vibrant colours, demonstrate resilience, provide natural dyes, harness the power of sunlight, nurture spaces, and enable us to reconnect with the natural world. As we pause to appreciate the wonder of plants, let us embrace their magic and cherish the extraordinary gifts they offer us every day.
