Ignacio Canales Aracil is a spanish artist, he creates vessels reminiscent of upside-down baskets or fruit cans using nothing but pressed flowers. Aracil’s method is a bit different from 3,000-year-old egyptian technique: relying on large cone-shaped molds into which carefully woven patches of hand-picked flower stems are placed. The pieces dry for up to a month without the aid of adhesives and are sprayed with a light varnish to protect the sculpture from moisture. The final pieces, which could be crushed with even the slightest weight, are rigid enough to stand without support.
