I'm proud to present this short series of "Fennel Firework" cyanotypes, created using fennel umbles, lovingly squashed to form these adorable little firework style shapes on the page.
With a little bit of magic courtesy of some frivolous pollen, each cyanotype has a galaxy/star-like speckling across it - the wonder of nature!
Each work is hand gilded with gold leaf, for an extra little sparkle. The fennel was kindly gifted to me by The Husbandry School, cut from their stunning market garden.

"FENNEL FIREWORKS" 1807 (8" cyanotype with gold leaf)
The magical cyanotype (blueprints) process dates back to 1842; they are made using sunlight/UV to activate a chemical reaction on sensitised paper - once exposed & processed, the image has a wide range of blue tones.
All of my works are handmade, using quality materials. Due to the process, each piece is one-of-a-kind, even when using the same starting image; this means you will always get a unique artwork.
