If you can take care of those plants, then you will know how to take care of yourself.'
It is the quote from my father when I am suffering anxiety disorder, and also the beginning of 'Green Fingers' this collection.
My aim for this project was to discover how an artefact was inspired by a gardening tool to deliver and facilitate the impression of repair and protection. The Tools can attract people to want to hold them in hands, in order to make the audience refer to Gardener's hands to convey the relationship between Plant Care and Self Care.
'Green Fingers' fused the traditional craftsmanship and sustainable plant-based material and selected the existing artefacts to make artefacts, hoping the audience could find beautiful bits and pieces around them.
