What is pressed flower art?
Pressed flower craft is the art of using pressed flowers and botanical materials to create an entire picture from these natural elements. Flowers, petals, leaves and other organic materials are being pressed until dry and flat, using a variety of pressing techniques. This craft has long been practiced as an art form in China and in Japan, where it is known as Oshibana. As early as the 16th century, Samurai warriors were said to have studied the art of Oshibana as a means of enhancing their powers of concentration, and of promoting patience and harmony with nature. Princess Grace Kelly of Monaco also practiced Oshibana and helped promote the art of pressed flowers worldwide.
