Etsy Find: Jenny Lee Fowler Leaf Silhouettes

It’s not often that someone can recreate something from the past in a modern way that’s completely covetable. (We can think of a few chains that attempt this all the time, and fail.) Jenny Lee Fowler, however, has managed to take the art of the Victorian silhouette and transpose it in a way that’s not kitschy, but rather completely innovative. Using leaves or bark, she uses traditional freehand and a small scissors to make custom profiles that you can then frame for decorative use. All you have to do is send in your profile shot against a neutral background, approve the outline, and await your bespoke leaf to arrive in the mail. [$65, and]
