Seedheads, Re-imagined by Ingrid Popplewell
This portfolio demonstrates the wonderful shapes of the seedheads, which I collected from my garden and local hedgerows and combined together in post-processing. I have chosen the style of classical blue and white Chinese ceramics to emphasise form and texture.
As ceramics were refined over hundreds of years, the porcelain became whiter and the blues more vivid. I have emulated these changes by including subtle differences, in the blue hues and the background tones.
Specimens used include; Dipsacus, Allium, Anthriscus, Pennisetum, Ammi, Fritillaria, Rhinanthus, Hydrangea and Phlomis.
