Collection of original Pressed Plant Arts
On this page of my site “Creativity by Rita Ford” I placed the collection of Pressed Plant Arts. Pressed Plant Art, floral collage, oshibana, mixed media art, Pressed Plant collage are different names for such kind of decorative art when an artist like me uses all kinds of botanicals dried under the press to create original art. Pressed Plant Art is thin, flat and looks like a painting. Somebody calls Pressed Plant Art as a floral painting. People started to create arts with dried under press plants in Japan. They named them oshibana. It was more than six hundred years ago.
