Bleeding Heart Mini Botanical Cast

$35.00

Bleeding Heart Mini Botanical Cast

The bleeding heart is an old-fashioned garden favourite, and it blooms early in the spring to signal the season’s beginning. This cast captures the fleeting beauty of the dainty heart-shaped flowers dangling delicately from the gracefully curving stems.

Product Description:

All of my botanical tiles are hand-cast from an original clay mold that I create using flowers from my garden. They reveal many delicate details that often are not noticed in real life - the tiny hairs on a stem, the intricate flower stamens and pistils, the tracing of veins on a leaf.

 As every tile is handmade, the shade of the plaster and the exact dimensions may vary slightly. Each one comes ready to hang.  Famed versions of some of my casts are available - please contact me directly if you are interested.

Medium: Hydrocala fine casting  plaster that captures every detail

Dimensions: 3.4" x 4.5" x 3/8"  Sizes may vary slightly as each one is hand-cast.

Flat Rate Shipping $15

About Diane

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.
