“Created by continually tightening drying wild flowers around a sculptural base, a process which takes months of work and years of training”. Ignacio Canales Aracil preserves the ancient art of flower pressing, a method that immortalizes a flower in its prime, dating back some 4,000 years.
These vessels were sculpture without any aid of adhesives.
According to his website, Aracil only uses flowers from private gardens of the most renowned landscape designers in Europe to create these vessels.
These sculpted vessels will be shown until the end of February at Lucia Mendoze Galeria de Arte in Madrid.
