Beautiful limited edition plaster cast plaque featuring a raised impression, made using a real piece of Cow Parsley, mounted on an Oak wood backing – 14 x 28 x 1.5cm. Cow parsley is one of my favourite plants & it grows everywhere in the summer. I collected this piece near my workshop in Newcastle. This would make an ideal gift for anyone who loves nature, gardening, or simply the sculptural beauty of plants & flowers. Each piece is signed & numbered on the back. This plaster cast plaque is mounted on a piece of Oak, which provides a striking contrast, there is a key hole bracket on the back for hanging securely on a wall. Or it can simply be displayed on a shelf. The plants and flowers are pressed into clay, removed and plaster poured over to create the cast. The process picks up an incredible amount of detail to create a beautiful raised impression. The life of flowers and plants can be very short lived, the process of casting them is like capturing a moment in time, preserving them to be enjoyed long after they have faded away. The process of casting gives them a beautiful sculptural quality and transforms the items into a work of art. I can cast your own plants & flowers for a special one off piece, please contact me for details. The plaques are carefully wrapped in several layers of bubble wrap & shipped in a large sturdy cardboard box with Eco polystyrene chips. They will be sent via tracked delivery with a courier & will need to be signed for. If you have any enquiries please don’t hesitate to contact me.
