Cinde Hoppe. I am no quilter. I can’t stitch in a straight line for one thing. But if I were quilting these clouds, I wouldn’t have to. This is really beautiful.

June 10 full length by GungFace ...an enormous 15 metre tall baobab tree sculpture in Southbank, as part of the Festival of the World exhibition. Each ring is made by people and material from around the globe. I read up a little on its history - the baobab tree is the oldest living specimen in Africa, a symbol for meditation and community.

Pressed Flowers Transformed Into Delicate Sculptures by Ignacio Canales Aracil The art of pressing and preserving flowers is a beautiful and simple way to retain the memory of a moment,and it’s a green way to create an incredible piece of decor.

Part dome, part surrealism, Aracil’s flower sculptures are woven together and explore the fragility of time.
