Walnuts

Walnuts 

A walnut, like a brain, is hidden in a protective shell. 
To get one from its shell, whole, you must use strength enough to crack it, but not too much that you crush it.

Spending time with the walnut and its shell from many angles I wanted to show its beauty and took photographs. These images form my walnut flick books, around a walnut and a walnut peep show.

I continued working with the walnut, making prints, laser cut pieces and an artist book in a nut shell: the diary of a walnut and  laser cut light box pieces, which came first the walnut or its shell?
