Herbarium, Series 2

The second series of our Herbarium Collection, the design features hand drawings of plants with roots intact. 

Excerpt of Jennifer's journal, notes taken during this time while studying embroidery at The National College of Art & Design:

'I have spent time at the Herbarium in the Botanical Gardens in Dublin drawing and photographing dried plants, which have been collected for centuries and are now catalogued and arranged in albums and drawers in accordance with the botanical system of classification. Over a million species are carefully stored here, some as whole, roots intact. There is a sense of the collectors who attentively gathered these plants, their hand written description of where and when the species was found, many dating back around two hundred years. This intriguing connection with the collector is comparable with reading someone’s diary of secret obsession. 

The faded writing and fatigued colours of the herbarium conjure an intriguing sense of history and of heritage...'
