Lichenology

Initially developed as part of Kate's final project for her Masters degree, then expanded upon for her solo exhibition at The National Centre for Craft & Design, Lichenology is a series of eight wearable brooches each portraying a physical, chemical and functional aspect of a specific lichen species. Following on from exhibiting at the NCCD in 2015, Lichenology toured to the Royal Botanic Garden, Edinburgh from Feb-May 2016.
