'Queen Anne's Lace Large Botanical Cast' by Botanical Art by Diane De Roo
Queen Anne’s Lace graces the roadside and meadows in the late summer, with it’s delicate, umbrella-shaped heads seemingly spun out of lace! This cast captures every detail - the gracefully bending stems, the wispy leaves, the tiny new blossoms and the fully open flowers.

I create my botanical tiles by first developing a clay mold that captures all the delicate details of the flowers that I collect from my garden. Then I individually handcast each piece in fine plaster. The finished tile captures many tiny details that are often overlooked in real life - the tiny hairs on a stem, the intricate flower stamens and pistils, the tracing of veins on a leaf.
As every tile is handmade, the shade of the plaster and the exact dimensions may vary slightly. Each one comes ready to hang. Framed versions of some of my casts are available under the Framed Botanical Cast collection.
Medium: Hydrocal, a fine casting plaster that captures every detail
