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
of being me
My Planet plucked beyond her means,
‘Had nature ruled your thoughts,
less wounded I would be
Too late , or not too late?
The child’s 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 .
