And to wrap this beautifully botanical week: the g,a,r,d,e,n 2012 ruler by Norihiko Terayama of Studio Note. Hand-picked herbs and wildflowers are suspended in acrylic, forming measurement notches and a little horizontal garden bed for your desk. Studio Note has previously produced a series of preserved flower artworks, titled Someone's Atelier for Hotel Claska in Tokyo in 2009, images above. The hotel also has a shop/gallery where they stock the Studio's work, so I'll be making a pilgrimage when we head over there later in the year, yippee. HF. PS Thanks EJ/Sanpo for the tip-off!
