Gray's sedge made from paper. This sedge is common along the riverbank and stands out because of it's weird seed heads. I love the strange spiky look with the thin leaves and even the brown "flowers". I made this piece as a part of my River Plants collection. I made the leaves from acid free drawing paper painted with acrylic paint, and the seed heads from crepe paper.

The plant is mounted into a shallow wooden box that has been mounted onto a piece of unfinished pine board. The box is painted very dark blue and the board is stained lighter blue/green. The name and Latin name of the plant are mounted below the plant on a hand written plaque.
All of my paper flowers, leaves, and plants, are made from high quality materials. They have been sprayed with a UV resistant spray and are made to last! I will include care instructions with your purchase.
