Asparagus, Peppers, and Mushrooms

$165.00

Asparagus, Peppers, and Mushrooms

The third in this series showcases the vivid red of the chilli peppers. The elegant green asparagus nod towards each other in a subdued dance and the striking shape and colour of the portobello mushrooms finish the piece. The red, green and black theme works well with any colour scheme, making this an excellent piece to give as a gift.

Product Details

Each piece is individually handcrafted from preserved vegetable slices that I create using organic vegetables grown in my home garden. I carefully enhance each vegetable by hand to retain their vibrant colours for years to come. They are mounted on a textured, cream coloured background, double matted, and framed in a simple elegant black frame under glass. They come ready to hang.

As is the nature of botanicals, no two are ever exactly alike and your piece will vary slightly from the one pictured.  

Medium:  pressed, preserved organic vegetable cross-sections

Dimensions:  12" x 22” x 7/8”

Made from Diane's Garden

I am a botanical artist who has developed my own unique style. Utilizing the vegetables, herbs and flowers cultivated from my cottage garden, I create a collection of show stopping wall hangings. Throughout my 30 plus years of practice, I have developed a range of drying, pressing and casting techniques for capturing the beauty of my homegrown plants in my art.

My work uses delicate cross sections that I create by using a razor to cut through the centre of each vegetable, preserving the roots, stems and seeds. I have spent years developing a process for pressing and drying these perfect cross sections and retaining their integrity. My finished works capture the vivid colours, varied textures and delicate inner details of each vegetable.

As an artisan I aim to draw the viewer in, and surprise them as they look more closely into the intricate beauty of each piece. My work has been showcased and highlighted in juried artisan shows across Canada since I started my craft. I have also exhibited in local boutiques, shops and art galleries. I currently reside, cultivate and create in the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia.
