Forget me not
Yellow Diva's Memento flower press preserves treasured blooms as part of a lasting memory; wild flowers gathered on a spring morning walk, sprigs from a wedding bouquet or petals from a posy marking a special birthday.
Memento flower press consists of a cast iron pressing weight, stacked archival blotting paper interlaced with cork pads on an Australian Blackwood timber base. A chocolate brown Tuscan leather strap binds the stack, secured with a button stud. Yellow Diva’s handsome artifact draws inspiration from both decorative nineteenth century cast iron book presses and practical botanical field specimen presses. Further design cues come from elaborately cast manhole covers from Japan, Europe and America.
