Modern Pressed Flowers





Via dezeen, the timeless art of pressed flowers transformed into three dimensions by designer Ignacio Canales Aracil:

"The flowers are held together without any structure or glue, they stand and stick together as the straw in a hat after being dried and pressed all at once. The roughness of the process which requires lots of physical effort contrast with the delicacy and fragility of the finished sculpture."

Fascinating! I suppose it could be a hanging lamp shade. Intricate and beautiful. Happiest of New Years to you.

Lovely. I wonder how they are made and how the color is treatd to remain so beautiful.

What a creative idea. I like that this sculpture remains three dimensional and you are still able to see all parts of the flowers/plants.

I've just found this blog and am sure to come back regularly.

That "flower arrangament" may challange our notion of pot pourri :-)
