Video summary: This is a short timelapse video, showing the process involved in making my prints. A negative is used on light-sensitive paper, which is then exposed in a UV light-box before being processed in water. Here the unused chemicals are washed away and the final image appears fully in deep blue.

My story

Hi! I'm Kiera, I'm the artist behind this shop.
In the autumn of 2020 after graduating from university, I decided to use what I'd learned over the course of my degree to create cyanotype prints to sell and open this shop.
I'd spent almost the entire three years in a darkroom working with the cyanotype process so continuing to make these prints rather than move on to another area or industry felt completely natural to me. So here I am!
I fell in love with the cyanotype process after discovering and working with it; there's something about watching the images appear in water as they develop that is entirely mesmerizing and it never gets old.
And I find spending time outside wandering around botanical gardens to find the right flowers or scene to photograph and translate to print is good for the soul, especially after the events of the past couple years.
I'd love for others to get even some of the benefits from these prints that I get in creating them and hopefully the calming effects of the deep blue hues of these prints will do just that.
I hope that these prints bring a little brightness to your day and can help create a calm and relaxing space in your home.

Frequently asked questions
Is your packaging plastic-free?

In designing the packaging for my products avoiding plastic where ever possible was incredibly important to me, because of this my packaging mostly consists of recycled cardboard to be as environmentally friendly as possible.
However due to the fragile nature of my coasters, they are shipped wrapped in bubble wrap. All of the bubble wrap is that which I have received in deliveries myself in order to reuse this rather than add new plastic into the cycle, but I am working on other methods to suitably protect those products without the use of any plastic whatsoever.

What is a cyanotype and how do you create one?

A cyanotype is a type of photographic print developed in the 1800s. It is characterized by it's deep blue hues and is often known as a 'blueprint' as a result.
Cyanotypes are created by applying light sensitive chemical to a medium and exposing that medium to sunlight. Once fully exposed the medium is developed in water where the deep blue image will slowly appear as unused chemical is washed away.
You'll find a short video of this process in the About page of my shop

Do you ship outside the UK?

Yes! Currently both large and small prints can be shipped abroad to Australia, Canada and the US. If you're outside any of the areas but would still like a print, drop me a message and I'll see what we can do.

Are you able to do custom orders?

At this point in time I don't as standard. However if you have something specific in mind I am more than happy to have a chat and try to create something that you would like. Just leave me a message about what you have in mind and I'll get back to you as soon as I can!

How long does each piece take to make?

This depends on the piece and the sometimes mercurial nature of the cyanotype process. On average to have a print made, including exposure, developing and drying times it will take a day to get the print finished to dispatch.
However most prints are made ahead of time so they will be dispatched must faster in that case.

Do you offer gift wrapping?

Currently no. However as standard prints are either wrapped in tissue paper or sealed in a biodegradable clear bag.
If you have a preference over which way your print is wrapped just drop your preference in the notes section when you complete your order!
