Description

Scientific Name:Fistulina hepatica
Fungi facts:The Beefsteak fungus is so called because it resembles a slice of beef. It is also known as ‘Ox tongue’ and colonises the heartwood of over mature oak trees. It imparts a red-brown stain to the wood which is greatly prized by wood turners and cabinet makers who refer to it as ‘Brown oak’. Although edible its appearance exceeds its culinary quality.
Technique:A textile assemblage with hand stitching
