Since discovering the world of eco printing I frequently have leaves in my handbag or pockets. Its hard to walk past fallen leaves and not to squirrel them away for the next eco project.
Living in  Australia,  eucalyptus surround me. This portfolio shows the work I have produced through this process of soaking in a mordant, often alum, before simmering or steaming  the leaves which are often wrapped around a rusty can or piece  of copper pipe.
