Easter wouldn’t be Easter without a strange and unusual egg on the market. And this year we got “Cumberbunnies” – 400g chocolate Easter bunny with everyone’s favourite detective – actor Benedict Cumberbatch’s head attached. The unique chocolate treat is created by Jen Lindsey-Clark and her team at New York-based Chocolatician who like to “experiment with chocolate and push the limits of how chocolate can be used as a medium to make art and bespoke gifts”.
Lying on the grass and taking in the warm sunshine is an enjoyment for most of us. However, having a green space isn’t that easy when you live in city, even when you have a backyard. Because it might be made of concrete. With this obstacle in mind, Jason Hodges, a landscape gardener on the Australian TV show “Better Homes & Gardens”, has come up with a clever solution – creating a grass day bed.
Wearing flower/plant on some occasions are popular, while wearing them as jewelry are not that common. But for some nature lovers, that might be an attractive option. Hence, American florist Susan McLeary designs a special kind of jewelry – live succulent jewels. The actual living succulents are hand selected for each piece. Then, they’re attached to the accessories and can grow up to 2-4 weeks. Later you can separate the plants from the base and pot it. By doing it, you don’t need to worry about waste the greenery when they outgrow the jewelry. Like this special type of jewelry? You can buy it from McLeary’s etsy store and be very careful when you wear these greening baby.
Russian Artist Asya Kozina, the genius designer behind “Mongolian Paper Wedding Costumes” continued to impress us with her latest work – baroque paper wigs. In this series, Kozina sculpted arrangements like flowers, leaves and even an exceptionally intricate sail-boat. They are delicately placed in the mass of extravagant paper hair, adding a sense of fantasy and whimsy to the conceptual compositions. When asked why baroque paper wigs, Kozina said, “historical wigs always fascinated me, especially the baroque era, this is art for art’s sake aesthetics for aesthetics — no practical sense, but they are beautiful.”
