Large Botanical Casts
All of my botanical tiles are hand-cast from an original clay mold that I create using flowers from my garden. The casts are make with Hydrocal, a fine casting plaster. The process I use reveals many delicate details that often are not noticed in real life - the tiny hairs on a stem, the intricate flower stamens and pistils, the tracing of veins on a leaf.
Some of my casts showcase a particular botanical, while others burst with intertwined leaves, herbs and flowers, and are reminiscent of an exuberant, free-flowering cottage garden.
As every tile is handmade, the shade of the plaster and the exact dimensions may vary slightly. Each one comes ready to hang. Famed versions of some of my casts are available - please contact me directly if you are interested.
