Exquisite is the only word for these handmade, organic pressed wildflower compositions. They are lovingly prepared by a woman living in the beautiful Pyrenées mountains of southwest France. She gathers the plants in the mountain meadows around her home, presses them, and then composes the pictures with her flowers using organic glue. Then, in India ink, she handscripts plant names (Latin and French common) as well as habitat notes, in the style of the classic herbarium specimen. She mats them on burlap and frames them herself. Each one is unique and signed by the artist.
This Pyrenées herbier
is of the wild red poppy, one of France's most treasured wildflowers.
