How does Labotanica Design create this velvet maple?

This plant-based work of art is the fruit of long and meticulous craftsmanship. Before turning, he made a base of coloquinte, which he began by covering with stabilised lamb ears leaves. The next step is to carefully peel off the maple leaves one by one, then stick them onto the bleached branch.
