There's a cult following obsessed with Marian McEvoy's (aka Gust the Poodle) pressed flower compositions. We fell under its spell as well. This masterful and naive composition of pressed poppies is certain to pop any brunch, dinner, or al fresco tablescape.
Conversation Sparker: Pressed flower practice, called oshibana, dates back to 16th century Japan. In fact, samurai warriors were said to have created oshibana as one of their disciplines to promote patience, harmony with nature and powers of concentration. Through trade, the art form spread to Europe culminating in the height of popularity during the Victorian era. Princess Grace Kelly, a practitioner, promoted the artform worldwide.
