Artist Creates Flower Fossils By Casting Plants In Plaster

In 2012, Rachel Dein showed the owners of a flower-shop a plaster-cast tile she had made from a bouquet. They were impressed, and soon the UK artist began receiving commissions to make more of these modern “fossils.” Dein’s method is simple: she presses beautiful flowers into wet clay and then pours in a mixture of plaster and concrete to produce a fossil tile. The dry tiles can be left unadorned or be painted. “I enjoy the magic of this art medium to create fossils from everyday life,” Dein writes on her website. “Whether it’s a shell found on holiday, your grandmother’s treasured lace, a Christening gown, or the flowers from your wedding.” You can find more of her unique art on Dein’s website, and see pieces for sale on Etsy.
