Pressed, Preserved, and Printed
Inspired by the precise beauty of scientific herbarium specimens, Allison Daw created this botanical print of a California poppy, the official flower of the Golden State. Her intricate process preserves the plant's delicate, distinctive details through pressing, drying, coating, and mounting a real specimen from nature, and then reproducing this organic ideal through a high-resolution scan and archival color print. The prints showcase every part of the plant’s unique structure and subtle colors, and include a detailed botanical identification in the corner. They make perfect decor for any gardener or decorator who loves the elegant intersection of science and art. Handmade in Oregon.
