New beginnings are symbolically connected to the unfurling ‘Fern Frond‘ that is also the name of the design. In New Zealand a spiral reflects exactly this state of a new fern leaf and is known as koru.

Significantly small circles follow the outer line of a larger circle and represent the small delicate leaflets. Once fully extended these form the fern leaf blade. In order, to achieve visual depth in a monochromatic design the circular shapes overlap and return a variety of shades.Continue reading “New Beginnings, A Tribute To The Fern Frond”
