Ignacio Canales Aracil, a Spanish artist, has taken pressed flower art to the next level with a series of three dimensional sculptures. Although they are as delicate as one would expect from the use of such material, the sculptures are also much more intricate. They take on uniquely towering forms that will bring to mind anything from tiered cakes to vases and more.

Resting on conical molds for as long as a month, the pressed flower art doesn't require any glue or adhesive to stay together. They are simply sprayed with a light glaze to protect from moisture. The pressed flower art is currently being displayed during a group show at Lucia Mendoza gallery in Madrid, Spain. Visitors will be astounded by their size and detail.
