Leaf carving art is one of the newest art forms in recent years. Its inspiration comes from the beauty of nature. Selective leaves are carefully chosen from the Chinar tree, which is native to India, Pakistan and China. Chinar tree leaves closely resemblance the leaf of a Maple tree.
Once gathered, leaves are then put through a 60-step process such as shaving, pressing, curing, dying and so on. The outer surface of the leaf is carefully removed without cutting or removing the leafs veins which add detail into the subject matter of the carving.
Leaf art makes an excellent gift or collection. Leaf Carvings, are exceeding all expectations in popularity. Carved from an actual leaf, which has been dried and cured, Leaf Carvings come in various subject matter. “Amazing,” “Beautiful,” are the words first heard from our customers who purchased one of these.
