A life sized study of a Fly Agaric fungi, found commonly in British woodland.
The fungi has been hand carved from old book pages and covered with recycled tissue paper to create the cap and gills. The stalk is made from paper maché and the whole thing painted with water colours to create a more realistic and vibrant colour.
It sits in a handmade frame made from Ash wood and glass.
The finished piece measures 24 x 26 x 8cm.
Commissioning a piece of work is really exciting – it is a chance to have something made especially for you and an opportunity to really engage in the creative process.
Perhaps you need accessories to go with a particular outfit or a piece of furniture to fit a specific space in your home. We can work with you to design something truly unique. You’ll be able to discuss your ideas, likes and dislikes with the Maker and together create a piece of craft, handmade for you.
This is just a first step, so don't worry, there’ll be plenty of chances to discuss details before finalising a commission.
