The inspiration for the Ginkgo Biloba leaf design comes from the auspicious status of the trees in Buddhism, their use in traditional Oriental art and medicine, and their distinctive physical composition. Here the fan-shaped leaves are captured undergoing a colourful autumnal metamorphosis, transforming from bold, verdant green to soft, saffron yellow.
The Ginkgo Biloba design is hand carved onto Japanese Shina wood. Watercolours are mixed by eye, either in the palette or during the printing process, where layers of translucent inks are printed on top of each other to achieve the desired colour and tone. This is a meticulous process, in which 15-20 layers are applied and each hand printed design subtly and deliberately varies.
All of our collections can be bought as single panels or multiples in either landscape, portrait or bespoke layouts.
