Crystal-encrusted plants that turn ephemeral flora into jewels
How would you react if you were given physalis or say burdock? Not the best gift, agree. But what if you are presented with these same plants, inlaid with magnificent crystals, which at first glance turn faceless representatives of flora into real jewels?
Alyson Mowat, for example, can do this. She specializes in creating inlaid sculptures of plants, which she, like a good sorceress, gives a second life in a different guise.
