Mini Botanical Casts

All of my botanical tiles are hand-cast. I begin my work by creating an original clay mould. I meticulously press the delicate details of the flowers and herbs into a rolled out clay slab and then carefully remove them. I pour the final cast in hydrocal, a very fine, hard casting plaster. My casts reveal many delicate details that often are not noticed - the tiny hairs on a stem, the intricate flower stamens and pistils, the tracing of veins on a leaf.

A collection of these mini casts make a wonderful display for a small space.

As every tile is handmade, the shade of the plaster and the exact dimensions may vary slightly. Each one comes ready to hang.
