It's been a good year for the Dandelion Archive with quite a few donations to the collection and the purchase of a few objects. Here is a Villeroy and Boch ceramic dish, made in Luxembourg, with dandelions showing leaves and the flower in bud, bloom and going to seed. Rather gorgeous isn't it?
I am a visual artist living and working in Preston, UK. My work deals with rural and urban landscapes and amongst other things I have an interest in weeds.
This led to a particular interest in dandelions: their complexity and variety; folklore and uses; science and research plus their representation in art in an historical and contemporary context.
