The Fly Agaric (Amanita Muscaria)

€125.00

A cluster of these mushrooms appear every year under a group of Birch trees at the gate. They are the original red Toadstool and beloved by the local deer, squirrels and rabbits. I had to cover some of the emerging fungi with plant pots pegged down with tent pegs in order to save some for mysel to print.

The Fly Agaric (Amanita Muscaria) is a hallucinogenic mushroom and I've written about it here.

This print is made using a wild mushroom picked sustainably in the garden. The frame (purchased) is 33cm high x 33cm length x 3.5cm deep which can be hung or stand. I used grey card and a grey frame with glass which can be hung.

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 are 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.
