Wildfire Poem Print


This print features an original poem written by farmette founder Loren Profit Smith:

There are certain species
of wildflowers
that only bloom
after a forest fire:
all that death and ash,
the burning,
opens up a space
for the sun to reach in
where it never could before.
And in the charred earth
those seeds crack open,
they unfurl, they grow,
they lift up their faces
and soak in the light.

Alongside the poem is an illustration of Baker's Globe Mallow, one of the wildflowers by which the poem was inspired.

Handmade “soft white” paper art print with four full deckled edges, approximately 5 1/4 x 7 1/4 inches. Front is letterpress printed in black.

Comes in a cello sleeve with a thick backer, a matte printed cardstock card with information about our process.

Ethically made in the United States. Woman-Owned.

More about the maker, Loren:
I’m Loren Profit Smith, and I founded farmette co in 2017 as a hand paper-making and letterpress studio that would emulate the values my family and I hold on our hobby homestead: pursuing beauty, celebrating the rhythms of the seasons, making space for peace, reflection and authentic connection, and sharing the abundance of this good earth. My small team and I dream up, write, design, handmake from fiber to deckled-edged sheet, botanically dye, fold and letterpress print each card that we offer. We make and ship everything from our barn studio, often accompanied by our sheep and a chicken or two. Our paper goods truly are a “farm to card” labor of love and we hope they bring you joy!
