Sunflowers are one of those quintessential summer time flowers, a golden halo of petals surround their saucer like centres. From single towering stems in your garden or allotment, to vast fields of these bright happy flowers, they never fail to bring a smile.
Each print is hand burnished using a wooden spoon using oil based inks for their longevity and vibrant colour, printed onto Japanese paper.
*The pictures are to illustrate design and colour. Due to the nature of the printing process, all prints have slight variations in depth of colour and placement.*
