'Wetland Meadow' 44 x 25cm.  Unique botanical bas-relief casts made in concrete from an original master using grey/brown Ciment Fondu and kiln dried sand. Ideal stunning home decor for inside or outside. 

These leaves and flowers were collected from a natural wetland meadow. Botanical bas-relief is an ancient method used by botanists to record the finest details of plant species. Fresh 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 detailed textured botanicals. 

From this original master a silicone mould can be made which is used to make a limited number of concrete casts,  each one being handmade and unique.

The new ciment fondu looks black/bronze and is finished by lightly polishing with Renaissence wax and a concrete sealant. This botanical panel can be displayed indoors or outside. After several months of weathering outside the colour will develop it's own patina.
