Azuma Makoto’s Frozen Bouquets

We’ve shown the fantastic botanical art of Azuma Makoto before, when he actually sent flowers to space. Now the artist is back with a series called simply Iced Flowers. Bouquets are carefully frozen within large blocks of ice. The effect is visually arresting. Staged in a stark concrete factory setting, the contrasting forms and colors are awesome. We would love to see these in person. Via Spoon & Tomago:
