Someone has been watering The Plant lately, the mag has grown in size and sprouted in beautiful ways! In the new issue we meet Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec to talk about how nature informs their creations, Jeremy Deller talks about his allotment project 'speak to the Earth' and tribute is paid to Ikebana maestro Sofu Teshigahara. Elsewhere there are cloud formations, Japanese mistletoe, ornate gardens French and the arboreal landscape of Northern California.
This bi-annual publication presents all things botanical in a neat, curious and accessible way. Featuring not just plants themselves, it expands its focus to look at the work of people who love or are inspired by plants. Each edition focuses on one plant in particular and connects the theme via the work of visual artists, illustrators, photographers and writers.
How beautiful is the humble watering can? Judging by the vessels photographed bobbing in water by Scheltens and abbenes, the answer is 'very'.
