Pomarius is an ongoing collaborative project led by the artist Alice Andrea Ewing. The resulting works are bronze ‘direct casts’ of the produce of gardens, historical locations and ancient trees in the UK.
Every work is unique, a direct translation of the original organic specimen into bronze, produced by adapting the Italian Lost Wax casting method.
