Dandelion Weave Monoprint II by Frances Pelly. Frances gathered these leaves from her fields in Orkney ten years ago, and handwove them into a flat, simple piece. The finished item was then left pressed for a decade. Frances released the piece from the press for The New Craftsmen's Portrait of a Place exhibition, deciding to make a print from it as it could not be exhibited in its fragile state.

Process

Frances’ work often stems from the landscape which surrounds her, using the many plants and trees which grow there in her work; from pressed plant forms for 2D pieces and willow for more sculptural forms.
