Collapsible Leaves by Azuma Makoto is an interesting plant art series that features folded and layered leaves. Azuma makes these sculptures by using a combination of moss, trees and leaves that are both real and artificial.

To create these magnificent sculptures, Azuma is required to tediously fold each individual leaf so it resembles a naturally growing plant.

Azuma Makoto is a flower artist and the owner of the Tokyo flower shop named 'JARDINS des FLEURS.' Since 2005, Azuma artworks have been featured in museums and exhibits around the world, and this Collapsible Leaves exhibit is currently being featured at the Eye of Gyre Gallery. His collection of personal and client work is truly remarkable, full of one-of-a-kind plant sculptures.
