These vegetable leaves are embossed, their fibres and juices staining the paper. They are hung here on string with hand carved hazel pegs. Their colours are ephemeral, changing if exposed to prolonged contact with sunlight, yet they are real and faithful renderings of the leaves. They are for sale in groups or £10 for each one
These vegetable leaves have been transferred to Somerset paper by means of the printing press, releasing their juices and fibres into and onto the paper. They are by their very nature, ephemeral, changing over time though contact with the air, from vivid greens, purples and yellows ,to delicate ochres and browns. They are delightfully redolent of the plants themselves, some smelling of the foodstuffs, and all beautifully real and original.
