Art Large Pink Elephant Ear Plant, Brazen Botany
The art of nature. Brazen Botany was launched in 2020 by set designer Caroline Byrne as an antidote to lockdown isolation – and to remedy her unfortunate knack for killing plants. These statement artworks in the shape of domestic houseplants are a way of bringing vibrance into a space, introducing what Byrne describes as ‘the magic of a tropical jungle inside [the] home’. In these high-quality designs, handmade from her studio in North London, Byrne channels her experience of creating ad campaigns and window displays for luxury brands – creating colourful and atmospheric set pieces that need no watering or maintenance.
