Can anyone drive past canola in bloom and not be inspired by a field of brilliant yellow? 
Gathering takes its form and texture from hand-woven baskets and speaks to human endeavour through acts of producing, harvesting, and connecting through food. 
The graphic surface treatment pays homage to Klytie’s passion for abstract floral design and highlights the touch of the makers hand
