In 2001, Geneviève Gallant started a series of works entitled Imprints. Every summer since then, she has spent time in her studio making these pieces, transforming common plants in framed wall pieces and necklaces.

"For the Imprints series, I use freshly picked plants from wastelands near my studio and transpose them into clay. The plants leave a defined, detailed and indelible mark on the clay. It collects all the details, contours and textures of those plants. With Imprints, I work on the idea of the fossil and I create a visual archive of Saint-Henri's native plants. I try to bring attention to these often overlooked plants, because I believe even the smallest detail is crucial."

A selection of these works are for sale on her Etsy Store: Nature Imprint.
