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.
