Ode for the Ocean is composed of many small woven boxes with items from the sea -- stones, shells, fossils and so on -- on their lids. It started as a diary-project when we moved to the sea some years ago. We moved from an area with woods, and as I have always used materials from the place where I live and where I travel, it was obvious I needed now to draw sea-related elements into my art work.
