Wonders of nature in your home.

Plants’ Whispers are created for you to enjoy nature at your home. The energy and happiness that accompany me during whole process of creating enclosed in texture of plants to enrich your space.
…PLANTS’ WHISPERS are
Botanical relief sculpture from real plants, created from plants from my garden and countryside around, also pressed leaves and flowers compositions in floating frames.
These plaster cast tiles show you intricate patterns of nature from different perspective than photography. Panels could be perfect finish on your newly remodelled home, adding a great stylish feel to your rooms. Elegant white colour or with touch of gold or silver. Shimmering in the sun giving extra lift with texture of plants. Different with light changing during a day can make your room ‘alive’ and more interesting.

Maybe you are looking for original gift that made your friend or loved one smiling?
Norfolk big skies and beautiful countryside inspire to create every day. You can share this admiration for endless creativity of nature, never the same, always surprising, very often calming, and yes it makes us happy……and smiling.

Tiles are easily mounted to wall with fasteners self-build inside. You can combine several panels as the best they look in groups as gallery display, or simply enjoy the one you like the best.

If you have some ideas you haven’t find in the shop, just write to me, I can make commission artwork with your favourite plants or preserve special bouquet you cherish so much.

How it's made ...
Plaques are created from a one-off clay impression (if I am lucky sometimes two) and no moulds were used.
The plaque is made by pressing the plants into rolled clay to transfer their shape. The plants were then removed, and plaster was poured into the impression. Then process of drying (about 2 weeks) and painting. Protective layer applied in the end. It takes three weeks usually to create a tile, from collecting plants to ready for dispatch.

Why have I created Plants’ Whispers?
Creativity is part of me. I try many ideas and techniques using different materials and always enjoy the thrill of creating, nothing compares with it. In putting together all your knowledge and skills, you create something new that didn’t exist before, one of the kind and unique to you. Sometimes it is piece of jewellery ( www.beexceptional.eu ), sometimes a photograph ( my photographic library is filled with images of flowers and plants of every shape and colour https://500px.com/p/joannapotepa?view=photos ) sometimes it is plaster bas relief.
I find inspiration everywhere. Much of my work is inspired by the patterns, palettes and sheer genius of nature. Whenever I am outside, whether I am walking in the forest or exploring my garden with camera in hand or collecting plants for next project, I am perpetually alert to the spectacle of my environment.
You are very welcome to my world - World of Plant's Whispers. Enjoy !

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalised orders

I am glad to make an individual order for you. If you don't see any flower or plant you like, contact me to see if I can do a panel with them.
Please contact me if you want a different size and quantity of bas-relief. For example, 3 or 2 panels of the same size usually look better on your wall. You can order painted or clean bas-reliefs.
Please let me know which delivery date should be met. This is important when it comes to wedding decorations, birthday gifts or any other celebration.
The offer for orders is seasonal. Orders can be made from May to October, because there are no plants at other times. The lead time is being discussed.

Care instructions

The plaster casts are decorative items made with hard, fine plaster. But you need to be careful with the bas-reliefs. Thin parts of the bas-relief can be easily chipped off with your finger. Bas-reliefs cannot be left outside for a whole year, gypsum is afraid of moisture, absorbs it well. They are sealed but please avoid contact with water. They can be kept clean with light dusting. Structural images made of plaster must not be cleaned with hard or scratchy objects, as this can damage the surface.
Ideal for cleaning is a soft cotton cloth or a brush.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Gift wrapping is available on request. I can also add a personal message for you. No invoice is included in the package.
