The Plant is a place for botanical pressings and explorations.
Carefully picked and pressed plants are used and kept for their enduring beauty.
The story of The Plant - botanical pressings and explorations - started a few years ago after watching the Danish film ”The Girl with a Dragon Tattoo”, where the story of the daughter who sent symbolic pressed flowers for her fathers birthday touched me. I wanted to re-create that magic wall too. A stunning displayed herbarium.
So I started to gather my favourite plants and to press them carefully. After a couple of idle summer months I already had a beautiful wall and a full herbarium. Autumn came with its busyness and many intense projects, so the plants waited peacefully until there was time and a new need for them. The need to slow down and find tranquility.
In the spring of 2020 I found the herbarium and because I could not leave my home I tried to reconstruct nature from memory. That moment was the begining of The Plant.
I was eager to be able to roam free, to touch leaves, flowers and look them up, to press them and to make colorful compositions.
So I did and here they are to be enjoyed by all plant lovers.
