Papaver Somniferum Candidus Console by Victoria Episcopo from Artemest
A captivating fusion of light and form, this sculptural console is a work of art and stands out for its naturalistic charm and sophisticated allure. The gorgeous flower silhouette is defined by hand-forged iron and the legs and feet have a gold-leaf finish, the delicate curves reminiscent of a flower’s sinuous stem and leaves. Topping this is a solid wood table top carved in the shape of a poppy flower (“papaver somniferum candidus”). The wall-mounted top is hand-painted in delicate shades of light blue and white, evoking the image of a flower in bloom. This is a unique piece, a one of it’s kind that will can take pride of place in any home.
