Landbase intersects ethnobotany, geology, and visual storytelling with wildcrafted pigments, ceramics, and textiles. Using natural materials Caitlin ffrench has built representations of her memories- mapping travels and life events into tangible objects. These works were made using the word Hiraeth as a catalyst; a longing or homesickness for a place that no longer exists. Each piece tells the story of a place or time that ffrench holds dear and where she feels that she left a part of herself.
