An ensemble of blossoms and foliage becomes decoration through embedding them in platters. By referencing traditional floral ornamentation, the glass plates blend into the canvas of a laid table.
Since antiquity nature-inspired motives have been represented in commodity objects. Particularly in the context of tableware, blossoms are a central stylistic device. Accordingly, Evergreen Platters quote this traditional tableware motive, but uses real flower parts.
By the durable embedding of blossoms in glass, the fragility of nature in this moment is conserved. Through the individual choice of flowers the basic commodity becomes unique.
The enbedded blossoms were pressed after collection. Inside the glass they are causing a three-dimensional effect.
