Andreas Verheijen uses plants the same way most sculptures use clay.

Known as "the flower engineer," Andreas Verheijen uses his sculpting skills in bringing these floral structures to life. He spent over a decade working at a Harrods' floral department honing his craft, and although his living works might lack the permanence of sculptures engineered from clay or stone, their vibrant colors and lively nature make up for their short lifespan.

Implications - With so many different harmful elements coming out each day, consumers are looking for more ways to protect the planet than ever before. Products that feature a green element are appealing to those who want to promote an environmentally friendly lifestyle.
