A maker of gilded herbarium botanical artworks and products.
Elsker Creations was created by Sian. She creates botanical gilded pressed flower artworks and products. ‘Elsker’ means love in Danish and Elsker Creations combines her love of the natural world with traditional crafts. Elsker Creations' artworks and products are inspired by the Herefordshire countryside where Sian is based. She picks, presses and gilds flowers that are grown from the garden or from her environment so the works tend to be very seasonal using wildflowers and cottage garden blooms.
Sian is very passionate about traditional crafts such as; bookbinding, gilding, calligraphy and letterpress printing. She has been honing these skills for the past 10 years and applying them to her products. Gold leaf features prominently within all Elsker Creations products using it to highlight and show off the natural beauty of the flowers.
Elsker Creations is very aware of the impact of the flower industry on our environment and aim for the grown not flown mentality.
