Hermien Van Der Merwe

These drawings of various Proteas are made in mixed media on paper.
They are displayed in ceramic vases.
The stem of the flower is drawn onto the unglazed vase with graphite that is fired into the ceramic.
The inside of the vase is glazed and can also be used for fresh flowers, if the client prefers to have the drawing framed.
