Functional Glass Art Adorned with Wild Flowers

Flowers, flowers, everywhere. I’m lucky to live in the beautiful seaside town of Santa Cruz, CA. Our temperate climate lends itself to year round gardens and as a nature artist, I’m always finding ways to bring that beauty indoors. I started pressing flowers long before I discovered the magnificent beauty of pressed seaweed and marine botanicals. On walks along the beach and in the meadows and forests near my home, wild flowers are in abundance. They grow in the sand dunes along the jagged cliffs leading down to my favorite beach, Greyhound Rock. Here are some of my favorites– Indian Paintbrush, lupine and dill pressed and sealed onto glass soap and lotion dispensers. This functional art is available for sale on EtsySoap and lotion dispensers decorated with pressed wild flowers.

Announcing SeaweedBotanicalArt Shop

Botanical BottlesI recently decided to return to a hobby that had been dormant for the last several years. When my children were small, I had a large flower and herb garden and my girls and I used to press flowers and then decorate bottles and other glassware with our creations. Pressed flower art was the stepping stone to my passion for pressed seaweed collages and therefore the birth of  SeaweedArt. I find the pastime very therapeutic, satisfying and huge stress reliever. These bottles are available for individual sale on Etsy and this new cool online shopping store, Sello.
