I am interested in fossils. What is a fossil? A fossil is evidence of
ancient life preserved within the materials that make up the earth. They are
usually found within a sedementary rock which was originally loose sediment
such as mud, silt and sand but could be entombed in natural tars,resins or
even ice. Most fossils are millions of years old and can be 542 million
Fossils are dominated by invertebrates, that is animals with durable shells
or skeletons. Plants tend to be scarce as fossils.
I have been photographing ammonites, nautiloids and fossilised fish, as a
subject for drawing, pastel work and for executing as 3D objects in fabric,
wire and threads. IW.
