The Velvet Shank and Friends


I found a cluster of these mushrooms, The Velvet Shank (Flammulina Velutipes), on a dying conifer in a dark corner of the garden. They glistened from the rain and I was able to go back a few times for more.  I added some Coprinus sp. (inkcaps) for contrast. This is my favourite print.


This print is made using wild mushrooms picked sustainably in my garden. The frame (purchased) is 25cm high x 25cm length x 2cm deep which can be hung. I used a grey card and a black 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.
