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 
years old.
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.
