All items are handmade and are one of a kind from foraged wild and domesticated plants. I collect whatever is in season on my daily walks, usually in the Philadelphia area. The composition of my pieces range from traditional (using whole, pressed flowers and leaves) to more abstract. Each piece involves laying jewelry-grade resin in several layers, over several sittings.
12 by 12 inch shadow box with 5 layers of non-toxic epoxy resin, alcohol ink, real cicada adult and nymph husk, maple samaras, grass seeds, sassafras leaves, honeybees, wooden insets, and amaranth flowers. Can be presented on desktop or hung on a wall (preferably with a light-colored background.)
