I sculpt the flowers that I make individually by hand, petal by petal. When I make roses I try for realism rather than perfection, so you may see slight imperfections in the petals, a small crack, etc. I learned to sculpt flowers long ago when I lived in Italy, in the city of Naples there are a group of artisans in the area of town called Capodimonte and I used to travel up there and just watch the artists making the flowers, they made it look so easy!!! I found out when I returned to the U.S.A. and attempted to make my own flowers, it is much, much more difficult than I thought, and it took me literally a year of trial and error before I was making acceptable looking flowers. The lovely rose is about 5.5 inches across, the tallest area of this is about 9.5 inches tall and it is roughly 9 inches across.. Check back from time to time, I'll be posting a lot more flowers, arrangements, etc. If there are certain flowers, or a bouquet, or something you would like made please let me know, the more detail the better, photos are helpful. I can make almost any type of flower!
