Crafted with elegance and timeless beauty in mind, Cuckoo Flower 2, Mauve Ghost Monoprint truly captures the intricate form of the flower. The delicate pink petals found in nature are perfectly complemented by the rich mauve ink in this exquisite piece. This piece is a ghost monoprint, meaning it has already been printed and I’ve peeled the plant off to print a second time with the residual ink.

  • Cuckoo Flower / Lady’s Smock, Caradamine pratensis. 
  • A5 original piece, handprinted.
  • Fabriano Unica, 250 gsm. 50% cotton. 5x7  inch plate size.
  • Mauve, soy based ink. 

The Cuckoo flower is a beautiful delicate pink petaled wildflower. A definite indicator that spring has sprung, you’ll find it growing usually on riverbeds and damp meadows. 

This monoprinting technique uses plants pressed for weeks to create unique pieces. The plant is inked and pressed onto paper with an etching press for detailed results. 

This process allows me to slow down, by going on regular foraging walks I can connect with my surroundings. I hope this piece allows you to feel closer to nature and appreciate the smaller details within the world of botany.  

Your print will come with a biodegradable sleeve, backing board and a thoughtful thank you note, all carefully packaged in tissue paper and wrapping paper to ensure its safe arrival.
