Happy Spring! Sakura Matsuri. Cherry Blossoms. Bonsai. Japan.

This weekend is Sakura Matsuri at the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens! Aka the annual Cherry Blossom Festival. In celebration of this traditional Japanese event and beginning of Spring, we created our own version of cherry blossom bonsai tree sculptures. Building an armature from wire was key in order to create a balanced structure to add layers of clay and cherry blossoms made of tissue paper to our miniature tree. The results were beautiful!
