While an artist-in-residence at the Pilchuck Glass School in Stanwood, Washington, Nancy Graves completed this series of monotypes in which she used embossing to introduce organic form directly into her prints. Working with Cate Brigden, the artist selected a variety of plants from the grounds of the school including a large number of flowers and berries and placed them on a glass plate, which she then ran through the etching press. The pressure accentuated the subtlety and variety of the organic forms and extracted their natural colors. Graves added watercolor to certain works in the series after printing to balance the random stains of natural color. (Excerpt taken from the catalogue raisonné, page 128)
