A life size study of two different species of Inkcap fungi (a common inkcap and fairy inkcaps), both common fungi in Britain that disolve their caps in order to spread their spores.

 

The fungi have been hand carved from old book pages and covered with recycled tissue paper to create the cap and gills. The stalk is made from paper mache and the whole thing painted with water colours to create a more realistic and vibrant colour.

 

The frames are handmade for each display from solid wood and glass. This particular frame has been made from Ash wood and lightly oiled. It has a wire on the back so it its ready to hang from a  hook on your wall. 

 

In order to keep your piece looking its best, hang it away from direct sunlight and avoid areas where there is a lot of moisture such as in a bathroom.
