Baby turnips grown in hydroponics over two weeks at the James Hutton Institute. Planning to press them into plant papers, or collage them into prints. Roots are very fine and needed to be floated onto paper so that I could spread them .

I am currently casting larger roots grown over 6 weeks with thin layers of latex which I can then use as a mould for casting plant papers.latex-cast
