This is a collection of mushrooms I picked from the woods and borders at the back of the house at the beginning of January. There are all sorts of little fungi here and I call them ‘Little Brown Mushrooms’ or LBM’s.
I am not sure what they are exactly. Mycologists find it
difficult to identify most of these species without a microscope. They have
great names like Scurfy Twiglet, Mowers Mushroom, Haymaker, Fairy Ring,
Mottlegills, Parachutes and Bonnets to name but a few.
This spore print was made using a collection of Little Brown Mushrooms from the garden. The frame (purchased) is 30cm high x 40cm length x 4cm deep which can be hung. I used a forest green card and a block beige frame with Perspex.
Like a fingerprint, each mushroom has its own unique pattern which ebbs as it ages. This print is absolutely original and unique.
It is not recommended to remove the print from the frame due to its very delicate nature and not all my prints can be sealed.
These mushrooms were picked fresh and, therefore, a certain amount of moisture soaked into the card causing some warping. This a natural part of the process of spore printing and not a fault in the print.
