Pippa loves to gather flowers from her garden and forage foliage from the country lanes around her Peak District home. Each season yields its own treasures: snowdrops and daffodils in the spring, sweet peas in the summer, crisp autumn leaves and acorns, followed by a winter crop of evergreen holly. These ephemeral delights can be enjoyed forever by capturing their forms and textures as natural bas-relief casts. Every nuance of even the most delicate petals, leaf veins and fronds is beautifully preserved, frozen in time!
