(At Talos Garden and Sculpture Summer Exhibition) 'Medicinal Herbs in the Garden' 36cm x 24cm.  Unique concrete cast made using white ciment fondu and kiln dried sand. Handmade to order only. These stunning unique pieces can be displayed inside or outside. 

These flowers are collected from my garden and includes mainly herbs that all have ancient and modern medicinal purpose. 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 used to create a mould and a strong plaster of paris mix is poured into that mold to create this unique art form of delecatedetailed botanicals. I then make a silicone mould from the 'master' fromwhich I can produce a concrete botanical cast.
Each piece is handmade to order. The drying time can take up to 4 or 5 weeks to cure properly before it is safe to ship.
