Botanicals as Art from Japan’s Studio Note

Julie Carlson March 07, 2013

Delicate sprigs of greenery become artwork when pressed between two sheets of Plexiglas. We're currently coveting Japanese designer Norihiko Terayama's one-of-a-kind dried-flower rulers.

Each of the g,a,r,d,e,n and f,l,o,w,e,r,s rulers Mr. Terayama designed for his Studio Note line has a stem or blossom encased in clear acrylic at 1-centimeter intervals. Each dried flower is placed by hand, in a manner at once precise and idiosyncratic. Quick, find us something to measure:

Photographs via Studio Note except where noted.

Above: Photograph via Claska. Mr. Terayama's g,a,r,d,e,n ruler contains specimens he collected in his own garden. For information and pricing, see Spoon-Tamago.

Above: A side view shows the botanicals sandwiched between two sheets of Plexiglas. The rulers measure 1.5 inches wide by 11.8 inches long by .31 inches high.

Above: The f,l,o,w,e,r,s ruler is $189 from gnr8.
