A combined love of the beauty of wood and the amazing variety of the worlds flora keep me constantly adding to my collection and creating mini works of art that display the details of nature others might never notice. I custom design and laser cut my own oak or pine frames select and artfully arrange each piece of plantlife from my collection and slowly build up layer after layer of jeweler's grade epoxy resin until each plant is completely encased. Each piece is carefully sanded polished and stained then finished with a stainless steel bail and metal chain. I never artificially color any of my plant selections instead relying on the natural beauty and amazing variety of nature.
