Iona MacKenzie has done design work for Materia Aromatica on a few occasions.
Her work is particularly refined, elegant, always atmospheric.
She has designed 3 luxury cards, picturing aromatic plants widely used and found in the Aromathepist's box. The pictures are chosen from Iona's large collection of artistic photographs. The cards are hand-made using a high quality cotton watercolour paper by Arches (France). The top edge of the card is a naturally textured deckle edge made during the manufacturing process of the paper.
"To facilitate the essential expression of the nature within something, without obstructing its light is my practice. I see this as a way that we may experience nature’s gifts to meet our own complex human experiences.
Relationship between all life becomes consciously from an essential point, which might allow a more truely harmonious possibility.
Each image I produce is accompanied by a brief writing describing what it seems to quietly reveal."
