Source: Instagram Japanese Herbarium Artist Preserves Blooming Flowers In Glass Jars 2016-05-19 Thu 2016-05-19 Thu Herbariums are most commonly created with dried flowers mounted on archival paper, and even though they look as good hanging on our walls as they are educational, we don't often come across herbariums in other shapes and forms. Breaking past the idea that herbariums should typically consist of pressed, dried flowers, Japanese artist rie has created her own kind of herbariums that any flora-lover would die to have in their home. While they may not display the flora as scientific specimens, they do capture them in ways that most other herbariums do not.

Since they’re submerged in liquid, they also bob up and down, giving movement to what we’re tempted to call a beautiful work of art.

They’re the perfect items to decorate your rooms with, or to give as gifts to someone special. And since the flowers aren’t pressed like most preserved flowers, they can be appreciated day and night in their original shapes and colors.

Although the website is all in Japanese, it should be easy enough to navigate through with the help of an online translator. Now you can turn your living space into a blooming field of flowers.
