This series combines marine botanical collaging with eco pressing, another organic process. Plants and metal objects, including seaweed, are packaged into layers of paper and then boiled with a mordant to extract color and form. The result is a toned paper with hints and highlights of the materials used. My favorites are blueberries and cranberries, rockweed and kelp seaweed, eucalyptus, onion skins, rose petals and interestingly shaped metal pieces. The results are unpredictable, but always amazing!
