MATTER + FLOWER { FOR C.M. }

A piece for C.M.

One of the best things about making these paper blooms is the play I’m allowed with colours. Blue is an especially rare colour in the floral world, having a lot do do with the acidity in the petals of most blooms.

Perhaps you know that the blue rose is the Holy Grail of flower makers? I’ve just discovered that a true blue rose has been developed by scientists after over 100 years of effort. Well, its not quite blue yet, but it has the potential to yield some true blue offspring.

I’ve still got the market cornered on blue Cherry.
