Beautiful Art made from seaweeds foraged from the West Country in the UK. Seaweeds are gathered and pressed by hand to preserve these marine plants. The pressing technique is similar to flower pressing.

 

The end pressings are then turned into sea botanical prints on stunning thick textured paper similar to the original paper they were pressed on.

 

Prints never capture the true beauty of the original but the colours are are pretty true to the pressed seaweed specimins.

"When descends on the Atlantic

     The gigantic

Storm-wind of the equinox,

Landward in his wrath he scourges

     The toiling surges,

Laden with seaweed from the rocks"
