'Blissful Pleasure - Sweet Pea'. This floral art is presented in a purpose made wooden frame measuring 38cm x 30cm. 

The process of botanical bas-relief is an ancient method used by botanists to record the finest details of plant species. These sweet peas were picked from my garden and carefully arranged onto a piece of flat, wet clay, and pressed in using a rolling pin. When removed, the flowers leave behing their unique impression.
The clay is encased into a wooden mould and a strong plaster of paris mix is poured into it. After curing, the plaster is de-molded, cleaned and sanded to create this unique textured art form showing intricate details of each delecate botanical. 

Each cast is supplied with a wall hanging device but must not be hung in a wet areas (ie bathroom or outside).  It can be dusted with a dry brush or cloth to clean.
