Leucocoprinus

01 May 2021

Rust, smut, mildew and mould - this cushion is a celebration of all things fungus. From the tiny mycorrhiza that allow forests to thrive to the mould that devours our old lemons, fungi are everywhere.

And when we say everywhere we mean everywhere - this series of cushions is a tribute to the distinctive yellow mushrooms of Leucocoprinus birnbaumii, a common household fungus known to inhabit the soil of our houseplants.
