The Fly Agaric

€175.00

I had a flush of Fly Agaric mushrooms under the birch trees this year. They all started appearing at once. I was so excited to see these magnificent red Toadstools appearing in such numbers. I quickly covered the budding fungi with old plant pots secured with tent pegs. The deer, squirrels and rabbits usually make short work of these hallucinogenic mushrooms so I was delighted to thwart them this year.

I did leave about a third of the crop for them, I'm not heartless!

The Fly Agaric is toxic to some people and regarded as a  hallucinogenic fungi. I have written more about this mushroom here.

This print is made using wild mushrooms picked sustainably in the garden. The frame (purchased) is 25cm high x 25cm length x 4cm deep which can be hung. I used a grey card and a black deep-set frame.

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.
