The lotus leaf and Gold, pt 2 In part 1 we looked at the process from harvesting, leaf layout and drying. Now that the leaves and frames have dried we will continue the evolution of these beautiful works of art to the finished product. Some silver Certain frames move from here for extra treatment in the form of silver leaf. If the customer wishes or the pattern would benefit certain leaves have this silver leaf applied. Being applied carefully by hand on selected leaves within the pattern. The silver creates a stunning effect against the more pastel tones of the lotus leaf art work. A little gold? You may have been wondering about the reference to gold in the title. The gold comes into the process in a very special way. The protruding vein structure of the leaves while pleasing to the eye is enhanced on certain pieces with the application of gold leaf. The artist, using a special technic brushes this gold leaf over the veins so particles of gold add an eye-catching look to the finished artwork. The finished art Every item from this artist in unique, no two pieces looking exactly the same. How could they, nature takes the leading role here. From small wall hangings and home pieces to very large frames designed for the foyers of the best resorts. These pieces emit a natural and peacefully stunning look, simply beautiful. It’s not only frames, lamp stands and 3d wall hangings are also available. It’s hard to better nature’s natural curves and lines but even harder to enhance that beauty like we see in these pieces of art. They’re a fitting compliment to any sleek modern interior or more traditional style environments due to the simplicity of the form and no visible frame.
