Have you ever pressed flowers?

Pressed flowers... the words reminds me of my school excursion when I was a high school student. I was walking with my classmates. Then some petals were falling from cherry trees as if they were snowstorm. I picked up only one petal and put it in my notebook. That snowstorm deeply touched me. Whenever I opened my notebook, I remembered the impression.
The petal of cherry blossom was missing afterward but I've never forgotten the impression. So I 'd like to keep the flowers that are in my mind and those that I grew in my garden forever. That's why I made the pressed flower art works.
Here I' ll show you some pieces of my work. They are made of natural petals of flowers. Please see and I hope you'll like them.
