ficus, dieffenbachia, monstera leaf imprint

reversed volumes plates are shaped by capturing the imprint of various leaves in an existing bowl. The space between the vessel and leaf is filled with casting material. Once dried, the leaf and the vessel are removed and what remains is a new object with both imprints.
They are replicated as food-safe and water proof resin objects. The plates are hand-crafted in a semi industrial process and this method allows slight variations in colour in order to achieve some variation within the series.  The reversed volumes series includes three different plates with imprints of following leaves: dieffenbachia, ficus elastica, monstera
The plates are an addition to the reversed volumes bowls and are produced by PCM Design since 2014.
