Sappi 2018 Calendar - February Feature

Artwork, inspiration and artist



Beneath our homes, below the lawns and under asphalt streets there is more than meets the eye. There is a complex blend of minerals and organic matter that varies widely in texture, colour and structure. Inspired by all that is below us and the growth of nature with science, together it feeds us, enriching our lives to become one.
