I love the idea of using earth friendly materials to decorate my home. I also find it comforting to support and showcase an art that has all but disappeared except for this cool company we found a few years ago. 'Marie Courrant' makes beautiful metal floralware the old fashioned way!
Eleven gorgeous stems were plucked from a series of antique botanical prints, wallpaper, and fabric from the Federalist period. Crafted of bronze, copper and pewter finishes, these unusual flowers were integrated into a unique collection of giftware items for the home. Handcrafted by trained artisans, each stem is soldered on by hand. Meticulously assembled, each object reflects the quality one would expect in a fine piece of art. Pomegranate flowers, daffodils, and dogwood blooms are a few of the inspirations behind these unique and classic pieces.
Elegant and sophisticated, these one of a kind treasures bring the garden inside....forever.
The petite wreath in the photo can hang on a wall use as a drapery tie back or a candle holder ( you can probably come up even more ideas! ) But the best part is that it's made of copper.
Copper is an environmentally friendly material. What's more, as a natural product, copper is almost totally recyclable. Around 40% percent of the total global consumption of refined copper is scrap-based. So its beauty is more than just skin-deep!
