Striking plaster cast using a real piece of Thyme to create the impression, displayed as a framed, limited edition piece of art.
Thyme from Ouseburn farm, near my workshop, was used to make this plaster plaque. It was pressed into clay, removed, a frame put round and plaster poured over. When the plaster is dry the clay is peeled away to reveal the beautiful raised impression. The technique picks up an incredible amount of detail from the plants to produce a piece of art that can be treasured forever. The process of casting is like preserving a moment in time so that the plants can be enjoyed long after they have faded away. By adding colour the detail is enhanced & provides a striking contrast to the frames.
Ideal gift for an anniversary, house warming, wedding, birthday or anyone who likes flowers, plants, herbs, gardening & nature or cooking. The frames come ready to hang, the oak one is handmade, they also look great proped up on a shelf. All my work is signed & numbered as they are limited editions
