These unique Ice sculptures with flowers are the work of the well-known Japanese flower artist Azuma Makato, who is based in Tokyo. They are another interesting idea from the artist and were presented at an exhibition. He uses different types of flowers and plants, which he arranges as bouquets. On a previous project, he arranged flowers in a hanging position.

The ice sculptures with flowers prevent the withering process. The special thing about this way of preserving the bouquets makes it possible to look at the flowers in a way that would not be the case under normal circumstances. The ice is wonderfully similar to crystal and makes the colors of the flowers appear stronger, creating a strong contrast. The use of flowers in yellow and orange nuances also creates an interesting contrast between warm and cold. The ice sculptures are particularly effective when the ice begins to melt. The flowers change their shapes and appear even more colorful, which is supported by an additional shimmering effect.
