Creative Inspiration: Leaves

With hundreds, perhaps thousands, of textures, patterns, shapes, and colors, leaves are one of nature's most accessible and profound ornaments. It is no wonder why so many of us creative types find inspiration in the leaf.

Nancy from White Earth Studio draws inspiration from her hostas in her own garden. Her bowl above mimics the hosta leaf's gentle tear drop shape, smooth edge, and repetitive veins. She graciously offered photographs of her garden above.

And even more divine examples of leaf-inspired works from the Artisans Collective!

Hooray for the leaf and its inspiring form!
