MY BEAUTIFUL BOTANICAL CASTS

My casts, both individual bespoke commissions and smaller works, are made entirely by hand, and are therefore unique, which is what makes them so special.

 

My casts come in different sizes from 13cm sq upwards.
 

The smallest casts are supplied with a tiny white easel for display, or on a wooden mount. It is possible for me to reproduce a selection of these smaller casts using a silicon mould, but no two are ever exactly the same.

 

Larger casts are supplied with or without a wooden mount.

All casts are beautifully and safely wrapped in recycled paper & tied with string. I attach a tag in the shape of a small red heart, ready to gift for any occasion.
 

All packaging is environmentally friendly and compostable where possible.

See below for basic pricing. 

 

Please email me to place an order.

ABOUT ME

I have been a professional cellist for over 30 years but I’ve also always had a love of nature, and flowers in particular.

 

When the Pandemic hit and the music profession suddenly ground to a halt, I saw an opportunity to develop a skill I had long admired, the art of casting botanicals in plaster.

 

This ancient practice involves pressing flowers and plants into clay. After carefully removing them and surrounding the picture with a frame, plaster is poured in creating a relief of the plants.

 

The result is delicate and beautiful, suspending the botanicals in a timeless impression to enjoy long after the plant itself has faded.

 

I draw my inspiration from the hedgerows of the Sussex countryside as well as from my own garden where I grow many species of flowering plants.

 

TESTIMONIALS

The tile itself is visually so delicate, the herbs lift off the surface beautifully, as if frozen on a winter’s morning.

this will be a cherished gift.

Thank you Rachel, I shall treasure it forever.      

 

S Leadbetter (New Zealand)

This cast, ‘Cosmos and Honeysuckle’ is simply stunning and mounted on cherry wood. I am thrilled to have this piece in my home and have been impressed by the talent and presentation in this artwork and the prompt and professional contact with artist, Rachel, from the start.
