My Estonian parents took me foraging from a very young age into local woods and beyond, looking for those elusive edible ones. Do not do this unless you really know your mushrooms. My interest has grown over the years to the shape and forms of all mushrooms, but in these pieces I have responded to the perception of a mushroom shape with some specific ones; morels and ink caps; made out of concrete, copper sheet, beach combed wood for the stalks and wood and pebbles for the base. Put outside, the copper mushrooms will go a lovely verdigris.
Exploring further, taking mushroom spore prints and working with them with mixed media.
