Makoto Azuma is an artist who can turn ordinary flowers into beautiful sculptures using a variety of design techniques. His latest work of art is a unique series that encapsulates a wide variety of flowers in see-through bottles.

The 'Bottled Flower' series is a twist on medical preservation. The bottles in which Makoto Azuma uses for this series are the ones traditionally used for human, animal or bug body parts. Alternatively, the artist simply uses water in the medical models instead of saturating them in a preservation liquid.

The end result is stunning as Makoto Azuma creates a vivid display of colors and texture. He uses a wide variety of floral types to show the true beauty that lies in botanical art.
