FOR PEOPLE WHO LOVE PLANTS:
Everyone who gardens or arranges flowers or simply enjoys the touch of flowering plants, wishes they could hold the beauty of plants for a few moments beyond their normal life. Thatís why we photograph, paint and sculpt replicas of flowers and plants for our home decorations. We are offering the old technology of plant collection and decorative display in a more convenient, modern format. We have all the items you need to collect, press, arrange, display and preserve small flower and plant specimens.
BOTANISTS FLOWER AND LEAF PRESS
Cascadian Design Studio offers a new, line of gift items for customers who like plants and the joy they bring to gardeners. We have a botanical display series of plant presses, special display frames for pressed flowers and plant collection storage boxes. These items have been created to function well as plant collection tools and are constructed of wood to enhance the plant handling and preservation. First item you need is a plant press that holds the specimen flat and allows slow drying. This drying process must be slow enough to prevent overdrying and fast enough to keep the specimen from spoiling and loosing itís form. Our press design allows for just the right rate of dry.
PRESSED FLOWER DISPLAY FRAMES:
Second, you need to have botanical display mounts that preserve the dried specimens and allow your continuous enjoyment of the flowers and plants. Our acrylic display mounts in wood frames preserve the plant and the visual enjoyment of your efforts. We also provide all the storage options and preservation techniques for each season of plant collection. Spring flowers to Fall leaves, everything is now part of your extended plant enjoyment season.
I will be glad to help you own one of these handcrafted tools.
