Earlier this year, a talented Japanese artist, Azuma Makoto, put on an exhibit titled “ICED FLOWERS”. The exhibition featured compositions of beautiful flowers encased inside massive blocks of ice. Cymbidium orchids, anthurium, and helliconia were just a few of the glorious blooms that made their way into the frozen blocks. The artist and his team strategically arranged the fresh, unfrozen flowers, and then placed the blooms into vats of water to be solidified.
“Flowers will show unique expressions that they do not display in everyday life, by [being] placed under a different environment”
The live installation was on display for two days at a gallery in Saitama, Japan, and quickly gained international recognition.
