Some inspiration for exhibition 'X'

I've been doing some brainstorming for my exhibition work (still calling it exhibition X for the moment) and found the perfect inspiration.

I'm interested in the idea of natural vessels that are made by animals for holding and carrying things.

I couldn't believe it when I found this gorgeous little wasp nest at work the other day. My eye managed to pick it out amongst some long over grown grass. I feel like the luckiest person ever, it is so perfect for the sort of work I want to make for my exhibition.

Unfortunately my camera doesn't have the best macro lens so I couldn't take any closer photos. A new lens is on my list of things to buy. The list is growing and growing however.

Wow, aren't creatures amazing what they can do; this reminds me of one of Wendy's vessels that you may have seen at the Exhibition, maybe hers was inspired by this too.

I love Wendy's vessels, I'm not sure where she gets her inspiration actually. And yes, nature is truly incredible.
