BOTANICAL IMPRESSIONS

These botanical impressions preserve textures and patterns of plant life in wonderful detail.  I arrange and then press plants, leaves and flowers gathered from my country garden, into clay.  When these are removed the remaining impression is filled with plaster and the subsequent cast reveals the beautiful flowers and leaves in delicate relief.  Some casts are given an added dimension with detailed miniature watercolour paintings of insects.  I sometimes have a few for sale in my Etsy shop or you can contact me if you'd like to purchase or commission a botanical impression!
