Polymer photogravure print "Catkin Pollen" by John Pearson
Catkin Pollen
Polymer Photogravure
10.875 x 21.875 inches

I collected catkins from a hazelnut shrub in early spring and placed them on a sheet of black card stock upon which they dropped their pollen. The result was disappointing, but I liked what appeared when I began brushing the pollen away. This is printed on mustard-yellow mulberry paper.
