Ebb & Upwell presses allow you to produce original works of art — each defined by the chosen seaweed, the pressing process itself and all manner of little nuances.

For me, the joy of this art form is found in discovering species you've not yet tried, noticing differences and experimenting with colours, textures and shapes.
