'Lavender' A concrete bas relief botanical cast of my home grown Lavender plants. 23cm round. Weight 1.2k

The process of botanical bas-relief is an ancient method used by botanists to record the finest details of plant species. Real flowers are carefully arranged onto a piece of flat, wet clay, and pressed in. When these are removed the flowers leave behing their unique impression.
The clay is encased in a mould and a strong plaster of paris mix is poured into that mold to create this unique art form of delecate detailed botanicals. 

To make a concrete cast I have made a silica mould of the original plaster cast and then poured a mix into the mould. This is made from Ciment Fondu Grey with sand. After curing for 24 hours the cast can be demoulded. Concrete casts are suitable to hand outside in the garden. They will weather over time to give a softer, organic colour.  Each cast is supplied with hanging device.
