Golden leaf

A golden leaf.

This was inspired by a leaf that I found near my house. I love the way it has started to disintegrate. The central veins are strong but the rest is papery thin and beginning to disappear.

It is cut by acid etching from stainless steel and then I hand gilded it with imitation gold leaf and then pinned down like a specimen with entomology pins in a museum entomology box. It is an edition of 20 and costs £475.
