A completely new design for 2020, this Golden Wreath was commissioned to celebrate a Golden Wedding Anniversary, but would also make a lovely festive decoration.

This print is finished in rich gold Cranfield ink on 140gsm black paper (made in the UK). The design took several weeks to develop and is a real labour of love. I was inspired by the Kritonios Crown, a decorative wreath found in Greece a couple of hundred years ago, which is thought to be one of the earliest examples of an ornate use of Gold. This beautiful (and extraordinarily old!) object is thought to date back to the 4th century.

For this print I used intertwined patterns of oak, convolvulus, narcissus, ivy, rose and myrtle. These plants and flowers were all used on the Kritonios Crown and have associations with longevity, health, love etc.... well, all except one: Bindweed (convolvulus). This plant, which is often the enemy of gardeners, is not something that immediately comes to mind when making associations with marriage but due to its determination to endure, it features heavily in the print. The roses are more of a dog rose, which is a nod to what is thought to be the oldest rose bush still alive - the thousand year old Hildesheim rose.

This print is sold unframed and is printed onto UK-sized A4 paper so it’s ready for mounting/framing as you wish. As this is a handmade linocut print, some variations may occur between prints, and you may notice some small imperfections. This is the beauty of this type of printing process: each print is one-of-a-kind.
