Having worked for many years restoring antiques, one day in the workshop I discovered this curio mold for pressing and molding leaves. In love with the aged look and feel of the mold, I repurposed the original piece by carving a cigarette holder into the edge of the leaf to create an ashtray.
Made from bronze, it has been sand-casted to retain the essence of antiquity.
Material: bronze and black patina
Technique: sand casted
Dimensions: length: 18 cm , width:12.5 cm , height: 3 cm
