''Bluebells 2'' is a botanical monoprint, created by hand, this print is one of a kind. Featuring the springtime classic flower Bluebells, this print has been created by printing directly with the pressed flowers. For the first print in my three-step printmaking process, the plants are laid carefully onto an inked plate, then this beautiful textured Fabriano paper is placed on top before going through the press. When you peel the paper off, you're left with the ink transfer around the outline of the plants. 

  • Bluebells, Hyacinthoides non-scripta
  • A5 original piece, handprinted.
  • Fabriano Rosaspina paper, 285gsm. 60% cotton. 5x7 inch plate size.
  • Brown, lightish ink. Soy based.

Bluebells can be seen growing here in the U.K. from April to May, often found carpeting ancient woodlands. 

The technique of botanical monoprinting is a slow process, requiring all plants to be pressed for a few weeks prior to printmaking. Each piece is carefully curated by using individual plants, making your artwork totally unique. The plant is inked up evenly and then put through the etching press with my chosen paper, where it presses the plant into the paper leaving an intricate copy of the delicate details.

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.
