Pressed Seaweed Prints of Maine
The rugged magnificence of Maine’s coast extends well beyond the shore’s high water mark. Spanning over 3,400 miles and boasting almost 3,000 offshore islands, the coastal waters of Maine offer an outstanding habitat for an abundance of marine algae. At Ebb Tide Impressions, we carefully collect, press, and dry a variety of the intertidal marine plants that inhabit the Maine coast. The specimens selected are chosen not only for their unique forms but also with an eye towards capturing the botanical features that distinguish the many floras from each other. The pressing and drying process takes place over several weeks to produce a final product that we use to create archival quality prints.
