This piece features a section of the larger Banksia Life artwork featuring a banksia flower in bloom and a partial image of a pod and foliage.
This is my creative interpretation of the unique form of a Banksia. There are around 170 species of Banksia in Australia and they form an important part of the ecosystem as a high nectar producing plant they provide nectar for many small animals and insects.
These species vary in flower formations but all are particularly iconic and unique to Australian flora and culture.
This artwork has been created from an original illustration by myself Nicole Taylor-Stone. The drawing is then transferred to the reverse side of the paper and carefully hand cut from the single paper sheet by surgical blades. The remaining paper creates the black graphical image.
This item is available framed between two layers of glass in a floating style untreated natural finish pine frame. This framing style allows for the piece to be hung on a wall or free standing on a table surface, allowing light to pass through the design to express its detail and view the makers process.
As each artwork is created entirely by hand each design and I endeavour to repeat the design as close as possible will never be identical and may differ slightly from each other as well as the images provided. You will receive this design in concept and each piece is assured to be completely unique for you!
