This original work showcases genuine hand-pressed botanical specimens in a modern light. The carefully preserved plant is mounted on black archival paper to enrich its texture and dimension. It's then placed in a beautiful solid African whitewood frame with aged black fillet and museum-quality UV glass. Part of a series of 12 unique specimens, it's pretty on its own but may be grouped with others to create a stunning gallery wall.

- Julie Franklin lives in Atlanta, Georgia. After studying art history and philosophy, she developed a deep interest in botanical specimens, which set the course of her in career in motion. She went on to build botanical presses and made her own stationery, décor, and lighting. Later, she was lured by another time-honored and labor intensive tradition: letterpress printing. Inspired by simplicity and interconnectivity, she embraces both old traditions and unconventional techniques in her work. In her work, she focuses on letting the unexpected happen with a measure of wonder and a little bit of play.
