Realistic Succulents and Blooming Flowers Meticulously Crafted From Clay

Nature-loving, New York-based artist Owen Mann meticulously handcrafts lifelike plants out of clay. Cleverly known as Floramics, his series of floral ceramics captures the intricate patterns and one-of-a-kind aesthetic of succulents and blossoming blooms.

Mann, a self-taught sculptor, dedicates his time to creating nature-inspired pieces that appear to have been picked from a colorful flowerbed. He individually fashions the dozens—and, sometimes, even hundreds—of petals, spines, and leaves that comprise each sculpture. He then arranges them in the unique, spiraling designs characteristic of the radial flowers (namely, peonies and dahlias) and prickly plants he opts to emulate. Predominantly painted in cool jewel tones like turquoise, teal, and jade and then coated in glaze, the finished products put a porcelain twist on real-life botanicals.

Mann showcases his Floramics collection on his Instagram. He also sells the colorful creations—which can either lay flat or be employed as unique wall hangings—on his Etsy page!
