Re-Interpreting Microscopic Forms in Nature 

Pat Small graduating this year at UCA Farnham with a Masters in Ceramics.

Exploring and probing among the prolific number of patterns of seeds and pollen, revealed that most are formed of repetition and symmetry.

This work is the re-examination of seeds and pollen through the amplification of the microscopic natural world, using the visual language of porcelain and colour. It aims to distort and elucidate pre-conceived notions of this infinitesimal world; a metaphorical portal into the world of these minuscule forms. Highlighting the unseen, the before and the secret world of plants.
