An English Artist Assembles Mandalas from Leaves, Rocks and Berries

James Brunt creates elaborate ephemeral artworks employing the natural materials he sees in woods, parks, and beaches close to his home in Yorkshire, England. This kind of land art, popularized and frequently associated with fellow Brit Andy Goldsworthy, entails detailed layouts, textures, and shapes formed using multiples of one sort of material. Brunt collects twigs, rocks, and leaves and arranges them into nature mandalas, spirals, and concentric circles. He photographs his finished work to document it nature once more takes hold of his stuff.
