PLANT PRESERVATION

Hortisculpture! The art of preserving and sculpting plants.

Over a number of years Mairi has honed her knowledge and skills in horticulture, and sculpture to create displays of preserved plants. Mairi uses a mix of methods from dessication to sculpting to capture live plant materials as they would be in real life.
Clients have included Bombay Sapphire, various visitor centres, Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh and private commissions.
