World Beach Project

Devised by Sue Lawty in association with the V&A museum, the World Beach Project is a global art project open to anybody, anywhere, of any age. Building on the experience many of us have of making patterns on beaches and shorelines, this project combines the simplicity of making patterns with stones with the complexities of shape, size, colour, tone, composition, similarity and difference.

"To pick up a rock, is to touch base. Touching stones gives us a primal, spiritual connection with the earth. When we handle a stone, we hold in our hands a small drawing, a tiny piece of the map; we are holding time."
~ Sue Lawty

Anyone can join in! See instructions here.

note bag

triangular scale pencil case

I love the philosophy of Yuruliku:

""yuruliku" was named by combining the words "yururi", which means "relaxing", with "yukkuri", which means "slowly", in Japanese.

We are particular about "things" and "objects" we love. In times we may hang around on the way but we would always like to be in-depths on creating "objects" we love."
