Nature blooms in mid-air
The charm of kokedama
The botanical extraordinaire Coraleigh Parker reveals every secret behind the kokedama technique. This Japanese art consists in wrapping the plant roots with soft moss sheets in order to create breath-taking potless plants. Developed from the bonsai tradition, kokedama similarly enhances the balance and beauty found in nature, conveying a peaceful sense that makes it a particularly loved technique. Page after page, you will discover Coraleigh’s creations: ferns, succulents, herbs, orchids and even small trees, sprout from soil and moss balls suspended in mid-air thanks to a series of strings or fishing lines to decorate a house corner or add a splash of green to an interior.
Along with caring tips and detailed instruction on how to create a kokedama, you will find all the information you need to choose the best suited material and achieve stunning compositions. The following entries present the author’s best works. A must-have for nature lovers and those looking for original ideas to spruce up the house interiors. Who wouldn’t want to explore a suspended forest while safely within the four walls?
