Cantharellus cibarius - Katherine Molter

NAME: Katherine Molter
COUNTRY: Germany
TITLE: Cantharellus cibarius
TECHNIQUE: stippling
YEAR: 2015
DESCRIPTION: Cantharellus cibarius, commonly known as the Chanterelle, occurs all over the world, from North America to Asia. This beautiful organism boasts nutritive value, as well as potential medicinal value as a source of vitamin D. In my piece, I focus on the interesting shapes and shadows of the spore bearing ridges. The use of a fine pen to create value using stippling allows for a detailed representation of a complex organism.
