Among other things, I collect wild plants.
When walking around in Milan if I see an interesting wild plant I always take a piece.
Once home I try to grow a root and then I put it in one of my pots on the terrace.
Other times I find seeds. So many different shapes and colours.
Sometimes these little things become my inspiration for some drawings or some hand carved stamps.
Like that spiky looking (but really soft) wild flower that inspired one of my birch wood brooches.

What do you collect? Is there anything you collect that inspire your work?
