Embla Original Artwork


  • Product Description

      The artwork measures 18 x 35 inches


      Using vibrant greens and soft creams, Embla utilizes real plants to create an intricate collage of pattern and flora. The pale hues, referencing plants in the winter, create a silhouette against the lush, green leaves of summer, reminding us of the cycle of death and rebirth inherent in the world around us and within our own lives. 

      This artwork is created from real pressed plants. Although they may seem delicate, pressed plants are surprisingly durable. Back in 2016, archeologists found a pressed flower inside a 3,000 year old axe handle dating from the Bronze Age. The flower was still in tact! In this artwork each flower and leaf has been painted with lightfast acrylic paint, which means the color will never fade. The cream colored plants have been left out in the sun under a sheet of plastic for three months, ensuring all the color has been completely bleached from the leaves. As long as it's handled with care, your artwork can last centuries, just like that 3,000 year old flower. 

      Artwork comes unframed.

      Materials: pressed plants, archival watercolor paper, acrylic paint
