MESMERISE YOURSELF WITH MULTIPLE 4PETAL FLOWERS
WALL ART by Sally Herbert
“In joy or sadness, flowers are our constant friends.”
― Okakura Kakuzo
My workshop is adorned with seed pods and dried flowers that I have picked up on my walks or from my garden around my workshop. These exquisite jewels of nature with either their simple or complex forms provide an ongoing reference for ideas that transfer into my designs.
Surrounding my workshop are many different hydrangeas, one straight outside the doors spends late summer and Autumn festooned in white delicate lace-like flowers. The Hydrangea Box created in wax was inspired by these beautiful flowers – simple and elegant focusing solely on the flowers.
Once cast into Bronze the piece is heated with a torch to create the colours and then cleaned allowing the individual flowers and pieces to stand out. With age, the finish matures and deepens.
Limited edition of 3 Bronze Boxes and 3 Sterling Silver
My Sculptural pieces are cast in a forge offsite. Being handmade means that each piece will be slightly different from the last. I have one in stock if you require more please allow 4 weeks to make until Shipping. The reason for the time is that the wax is poured, which is then moulded up and then cast when a bronze or silver pour is being run. We then need to finish the pieces which can take time. We will keep you informed at all stages.
Basic Care instructions:
Please keep your Hydrangea Box dry, dust using a soft cloth, soft shoe brush, soft toothbrush or the nozzle brush attachment of your vacuum cleaner. If de-greasing or heavier cleaning is required, test a small area first, cleaning it with mild soap and distilled water. Rinse thoroughly and allow to dry thoroughly.
