I have always been inspired by thick crystal: it suggests an association with a block of ice. And this shooting symbolizes the awakening of spring: the victory of nature, in which an incredible riot of colors, forms, and movements is born.
This project is a collaboration with TSUM, the largest Russian reseller of luxury, and premium clothing and luxury goods. In creating flower arrangements, I started from crystal vases of three major brands: Lalique, Daum, and Baccarat.
So heavy and overwhelming vases, as a rule, just stand in the interior and are rarely used for their intended purpose. I showed that you can find your own flowers under any vase and make your own composition.
All these works are also very personal stories about my own feelings and expectations; I live in St. Petersburg (Russia) and now I really miss spring. So far, spring is only in my fantasies and in my works.
The Flowers I Used
Japanese ranunculus, gorgeous in their color, was grown in the Netherlands by Monarch Flowers.
Unique clematis that can only be found at Marginpar.
