Owen Mann is a self-taught sculptor based in New York who creates intricate and realistic flowers using clay and porcelain. Each petal on his unique clay flowers is created with a lot of love in order to celebrate the beauty of nature.
The artist started using clay to create his own toys when he was only 4-years-old. He created his first flower for his mother when he was 10.
“I created everything from animals, airplanes, soldiers, sports figures. I really would make anything I could imagine. I made my first flower at age 10 and it was a red and white Rose for my mother. I knew then that I would always be able to go back to making ceramic flowers to make money but didn’t do so until I was 26 years old,” the artist told Bored Panda.
Today Mann has more than 1000 of these blooming flowers in his collection and each one is unique in its own way. You can take a look at the artist’s botanical collection on his Instagram account and buy some of his creations on Etsy.
