"Since moving to the Illawarra coast in 2003 I've become a beachcomber, exploring the eroded platforms rich in minerals and marine life.
"At low tide, I've found a modest colony of unassuming creatures who move incredibly slowly, creating intricate patterns in the sand. Each day, the lacework made by these creatures changes; sometimes it is loose, like an erratically woven fabric of irregular Celtic knots, at other times, it is more tightly knit, a denser filigree mesh of pathways. I call these images the Sandscript collection."
Caroline's images are held in private and public collections in Australia and overseas. To order prints, please contact caroline at : firstname.lastname@example.org

Caroline Baum's Sandscript rug collection is inspired by the mysterious calligraphic patterns made by sea snail colonies on the rock shelf near her home on the pristine beaches of the south coast of new South Wales.
'The backdrop of the rock, rich and vivid with minerals, created a colourful natural canvas for the gorgeous abstract landscapes made by molluscs. Each day, the tide washes them away. The rug designs are a lasting interpretation of their daily scribbles.'
Each rug is unique and meticulously hand knotted from Tibetan wool and silk. Opulent and timeless, each piece tells a story. Details here.
