Family Portrait

I was commissioned to create a family portrait using objects that had been chosen by the parents and their two boys

I wanted a family portrait for our new family home, but an unconventional one. When I first saw Rachel ‘s work I was very impressed and felt that she would produce a body of work that was truly unique. And she did. ‘Our favourite things portraits” have attracted much admiration especially from little people. I look forward to working with Rachel again.

18th Birthday Present

This tile is made with the flowers Hannah gave me from her grandmother’s garden. She wanted my work to celebrate happy childhood memories on her 18th birthday.

The tile has preserved the detail of the flowers in such a pretty and elegant way – I especially love the broken heart flowers, lavender stalks and tiny leaf veins. It really is a beautiful and permanent reminder of my summers in the garden.

Little girl’s dress from the 1930’s

This was a commision to preserve a pretty dress in a beautiful and evocative way. The dress has great sentimental value to the owner – who is the daughter of the little girl who once wore this dress.

 

Weddings

MY METHOD OF PLASTER CASTING WILL CAPTURE YOUR BRIDAL BOUQUET IN A UNIQUE AND DELICATE WAY. I MAKE IMPRESSIONS OF THE FLOWERS INTO WET CLAY AND THEN POUR PLASTER DIRECTLY OVER IT.

The clay captures the most intricate details, subtly colouring the plaster as it sets. Each clay mould can only be used once making every piece unique.  Tiles are then finished and refined by hand.

Tile dimensions are 400mms x 400mms x 15mms. Each piece has a brass mirror plate on the back for hanging.

Special thanks to florist Helen Newman, for the photo.

The cost of a wedding tile is £600

I love this tile for many reasons…. it perfectly captures the fragile beauty of nature,…. it was a present from my sister and is made from flowers that my beautiful niece and I were carrying on my wedding day. Thank you for making this beautiful artwork.

CAT’S WEDDING TILE (JULY)

The tile is beautiful and such a lovely way to remember our wedding day. Flowers are ephemeral but we have their imprint preserved forever. I like the white plaster finish of Rachel’s work – it seems particularly appropriate for a wedding momento, but also looks modern and attractive enough to hang almost anywhere in the house.
