ForestnShoreNaturals' Shop Announcement

Botanical prints and floral sculptures -- lovely additions to your home.
Check listings for special sale prices. Sale includes only items that are ready to ship. Doesn't apply to "made to order" items.

This shop specializes in woodland design -- botanical sculpture and topiary.
Here you can shop for seasonal wreaths, arrangements, wedding bouquets -- made of natural dried and quality faux botanicals -- and mixtures of the two.

Of parallel importance to my signature arrangements are my two-dimensional botanical relief prints -- original hand-pulled botanical prints -- one-offs -- and herb note cards. I create using direct relief printing; some call it Nature Printing since the impressions are of natural objects. Also I design with indirect printing, where a glass plate is inked and set up for printing. The cards are reproductions of original nature prints of herbs, leaves, and shells.

Currently featured: spring wreaths & arrangements; topiaries, eggs and bunnies, woodland wedding flower baskets and arrangements, scented items. Natural dried and silk flowers, but not the ordinary fare....

My arrangements and wreaths usually have some kind of theme, story, or feeling to be revealed through the design and choice of materials. Nature is my muse and my religion. I'm heavily influenced by a woodland design aesthetic, as well as French country and Parisian design styles and trends.

Here, you'll see botanical art of all sorts -- hand-pulled relief prints of plants and sea fossils (shells); topiary art and botanical sculptures; natural dried wreaths and arrangements; designs made of mixed natural and faux/silk flowers and shells, pods, twigs, grasses, barks, mosses, lichens, and assorted fibers; herb note cards; potpourri, lavender sachets and other scented items.

I also make up-cycled cork boards/trivets...cork is from a tree, after all!

Be sure and check my sold items -- you may see something you really like that is missing from the current items for sale. Chances are I can make that again though not always --because some are true one-offs. But it doesn't hurt to ask! Often, it's a seasonal item and the plants used are not available until in season again the next year.Or I had just enough of a particular flower, pod, or whatever to make one arrangement/wreath.

My botanical prints are hand-pulled and one-of-a-kind -- NOT giclee reproductions...
You are looking at and potentially buying original artwork, not copies. Considering that, I think the prices are very reasonable. Since I print from actual leaves, etc., generally only one print can be made each time. However, the herb and leaf note card sets ARE reproductions: they are printed by me from original herb and leaf nature prints. Some of the cards are hand-printed, hand-pulled originals and are usually sold as single cards.

Hawaii Five-0
Four of my original botanical prints were recently purchased by the Hawaii-Five-0 TV program for use as set decorations for the 2014 filming season.

Original Designs
Many of my wreaths, topiaries, and arrangements are one of a kind. But, sometimes it's possible to make if you see something you'd like several of, perhaps an arrangement or wreath you'd like to buy for your wedding or a party, just ask me!! All pieces are my original designs/concepts. Also, look at my sold items -- you might see something you like that I can make more of.

Free local delivery in the Lexington/Fayette County, Ky. area.
