Ignacio created these flower sculptures in collaboration with some famous European landscape designers, who allowed him to hand-pick every flower from their private and public gardens and then place those bouquets in big molds until they’re dried. They also had to use some varnish spray to protect the pieces from humidity. Although the finished sculptures look gorgeous and rigid, in fact, they are so fragile that they can be easily crushed with the lightest touch.
