WATCH: Michael Lloyd’s silversmithing in Let Nature Guide My Eyes by Sue Thomas

AF Fellow and silversmith Michael Lloyd has collaborated with filmmaker Sue Thomas to document his drawing and making process, with his corresponding poem Let Nature Guide My Eyes. Watch below, and learn more about Michael’s work through his takeover of our Instagram.

Let nature guide my eyes,
For blinded by the veil of clever folly
I failed to see
the cost
of being me

My Planet plucked beyond her means,
She cries
‘Had nature ruled your thoughts,
less wounded I would be

Too late , or not too late?
The child’sĀ child thrown to fate
or, some turn of tide , on natures side
a long remembered dream of Eden past.

The choice is ours ,
but will not last .
