Have you ever seen the gorgeous sculptural form of an agave plant up close? Their winding spiky leaves curling up and outwards, leaving their imprint on the leaf below? They are one of the most fascinating plants to study up close and can grow to impressive heights.
A member of the succulent family, the spiky structures of many agaves can be found in the rocky gardens of the Minack theatre in Cornwall. This is where Liz has taken inspiration from for this striking minimalist print. Hang it on its own or as part of a gallery wall to add colour and texture whilst bringing a sense of the outdoors in.
Research in colour psychology suggests that the colour green has calming and stress reducing effects that can be linked back to nature. This could be why so many people like to fill their homes with plants or images that relate to the natural world.
Minimalist Agave originates from a hand printed piece created by Liz, founder of Slow Sunday, in her home studio in Bristol. Liz uses a unique papercut stencil and roller print technique to produce her beautifully textured prints. The handmade artwork has then been scanned and digitally modified to create the perfect print. The artwork is digitally printed onto artist quality smooth cotton high white paper. The paper has a lovely quality and is thick and weighty at 225gsm.
Your print will be carefully packaged with a cardboard backing and placed inside a card backed envelope to ensure it arrives with you safely. The print itself will be wrapped in a bio-degradable and compostable ‘cellophane’ bag which has been made in the UK from vegetable starch. These bags can be placed in either a home or commercial compost bin and will break down to CO2 and water which can then be reused in the ecosystem to make new plants.
Liz adds a handwritten thank you note to each order. If you would like this to be personalised with your own message and sent directly as a gift please add a note to your order before heading to check out.
