“Are those real flowers?” Is a question that has been asked by many people! But it’s only one of the comments I have received at the many flower, crafts, and regional art shows, I’ve taken part in around the Northern Michigan and Houston areas.
My name is Ann Spencer, I learned the art of creating these special Thai clay flowers while in Thailand visiting my mom there a many years ago. I sculpt, paint and arrange the flowers, which are created from a very special clay for all your flower needs. From wedding bouquets and birthdays, to party centerpieces or just a display for your home, clay flowers are a wonderful alternative to real flowers that are durable, beautiful and long lasting. Some of my favorite flowers to make are Orchids, Christmas Cacti, Trillium, and Blue Bonnets but I would love take any requests. I also make miniature arrangements that are great for gift-giving.
These flowers are made from special formulated air dry clay. I begin by flattening the clay, then cut and shape each petal with special hand tools, using wire and adhesives. Before the petals are completely dry, I hand paint the petals and leaves to achieve the correct color of the actual flower. I then assemble and arrange them together to complete the whole flower. The life size flowers must be allowed to dry over night. The following day they are then arranged into a vase or pot or on wood, creating a very life-like presentation.
