SUMMARY

During the making and collecting of seal by natural material, I started to study and find that each material that born in nature had their own special core, personality, or even the spirit when I am looking and feeling their feature. There must have some style, element or essence that match or belong to each natural material. As similar as to find their own Imagery and inwardness, I excavated, studied, and imagined them in order to transform the nature material into a nature seal, and grouping them just like the Atlas in the format of the Album, with a drawing and description of the seal material. In this work, it’s divided to 3 Chapters: 1. The Collections of Ganoderma Seal; 2. The Collections of Mushroom Seal; 3. The Collections of Seed Seal. Besides, I also interested in Chinese medicine and the book or “Compendium of Materia Medica” by Li Shizhen when I was small, so, those reason that stimulated me to make a collection of seal from nature.
