Austindog32820 writes: nature leaf carving was inspired by running across an erose leaf of ginkgoes, which was created a pattern similar to the map of China by insect. A new idea popped into his mind like a flash, why not sculpture the nature leaf by hand, fully utilizes the vein of the leaf?
The crafting process of nature leaf carving is very complicated. Every piece leaf carving would be taken more than 60 processes to be created.
First choose the suitable fall leaf for the unique pattern, kinds of leaves including elms, magnolia, peeple trees, ginkgoes, etc. and then immerse the leaf in water, clean the leaf, with other processes including biological treatment, press, rubbing, iron, set the pattern, sculpture and so on.
this crafting of nature leaf sculpture is pursued and admired by many folk artists in China. Some technical workshops have been even established to be researched and inherited this crafting. They have popularized this nature leaf sculpture to more common people successfully as personalized home décor and unique gift.
