This piece is a direct impression from some Anglesey bees, a piece of honeycomb and some of the plants from the meadow where the hive is. The bees died of natural causes and acquired them from the bee keeper in May 2022. Each individual item is inked up using an acrylic screen printing ink and then a piece of Thai mulberry paper has been skillfully pressed against the surface of each item, this means the print is made up of many multiple prints. When dry, the print is then wet mounted using the original urauchi method. This is where a second sheet of paper, in this case a Chinese washi is adhered to the back of the print using only a wheat paste which I make myself. The wet print is then left on a flat surface to dry flat. This takes around 24 hours.
