About Sherry Doyal: “Inspired by a material or found objects and associated ideas, concept is important to me. Working in progressively creative ways within the convention of botanic materials gives me ownership of my work.

I work from urban trees or woodland. I explore the idea of enclosure of the fragile, such as wasp paper, or containment of the dangerous, such as thorns. I select materials for variety of inherent colour or use plant dyes. I choose resin for scent and tack. Smoked materials gain colour, scent (and sometimes damage) in a process, not unlike a ceramic firing, with risk, which I like. I work small scale but push past this with larger repeat unit works.”
