1. House and Leisure – A living legacy

We are obsessed with this blog post.

It takes us into Nic Bladen’s world of botanical sculptures, where he turns South African plants into masterpieces.

There is just something so enchanting about casting flowers and plants into delicate bronze sculptures.

“Many of the plants Bladen casts are endangered and he is trying to shine a light on their status as well as the threat of global warming.”

And his work is just so beautiful.

Read all about his castings, and where he sees his work going, 300 years from now.
