Rachel Dein

Rachel Dein Botanical Casts - Large


Rachel Dein’s botanical casts are perfectly captured compositions of nature.

They are made using flowers and foliage that are carefully arranged then pressed into a slab of clay. The foliage is then carefully removed leaving behind a highly detailed imprint.

A wooden frame is then placed over and the plaster poured in. Once set, the clay is peeled away to reveal the ‘plants’ in relief. With these pieces, a silicon rubber mould was made from which this tile was cast - using Portland cement.

Rachel makes plaster casts of plants and flowers that record all their texture, pattern, and delicacy in exquisite details. Her composition can be as simple as a single stem or as complex as a field of wildflowers, leaves, and grasses and she casts in both plaster and concrete. The tiles reflect Rachel’s interest in nature, its transience and tenacity.

The Hellebore, Fritillaria and Spring botanical casts have been exclusively made for The Merchants Table.
