"Ocean Flowers" is a composition made with REAL pressed seaweeds (not a print), fixed on a textured green paper.
Size: 8.3 x 11.7 inches (21 x 29.6 cm)
Ready to be framed under glass.
The seaweeds used in this pressing have been collected naturally faded on beaches. It is difficult to find them and processing to keep them almost white is very arduous.
Anna Atkins, 1799-1871, was an amateur botanist and she was the first woman to publish a photographic work, recognizable today as the blueprint process. Her photographs of British algae gave me the idea to create some seaweed artwork on dark coloured paper.
Botanical art and seaweed pressing became popular in Victorian Days. People would use the pressings in herbarium, books and wall decor.
A set grouped together will make an exclusive and beautiful wall display.
Suitable for every related business with seaweeds: nautical, herborist, cosmetic and wellness centers, spa facilities, aquariums and marine museums.
Shipped worldwide by registered mail. I always combine shipping fees if you buy multiple items. Please contact me if you have any questions.
