O Horizons

This print was inspired by our New Year’s Day hike in the Sequoia National Park, where we observed imprints left by leaves and plants where they had fallen. We arranged motifs and patterns in a style that reminded us of patchwork quilts and Japanese woodblock prints. The pattern is named after the earth's topmost layer of soil, the “O Horizon,” comprised of organic matter, leaves, twigs, moss, lichen, and pine needles that are beginning their process of decomposition.
