Creative Lush Garden Garage Idea Wins Gold Medal at Chelsea Flower Show

Well, garage is a place, where you pass frequently throughout the day and night. An adorable garage gives the real essence and feeling of satisfactions. So, a garage may be sound like an unseemly environment for lush green scenery.  The artist Kazuyuki Ishihara built an eye-catching garden with a vintage car parked in during the Chelsea Flower Show in London. 

The award winning artist Ishihara presented Senri-Sentei, built a two tiered structure with an ample plot of plant life on its roof, with a chair / table in a room, provides comfortable resting place for a vintage car, making an amazing synchronization between greenery and garage. Therefore, Ishihara’s landscaping business Kaza Hana, is based in Japan toured around Europe to source the foliage for the flower show design. He’s been competing in flower shows since 2004, and more than ten years’ experience behind him to travelling around the world to show his creativeness. 

 So, the accomplish experience understand him to acquaint the London audience with his foreign aesthetic. Moreover, Japan has a specific affection for moss because it grows so adequately in its humid climate, however in the UK’s drier air is inhospitable to the plant form, so the Flower Show judges weren’t primarily eager to accept it as an important element in Ishihara's landscaping. In 2012, the first time, his efforts were truly admired and he earned his first gold medal and he has gone on to do so every year since. Consequently, this year's award in the “Artisan Gardens” category marks his 5th consecutive win, owing to his groundbreaking inspiration and vision. Source: Charismatic Planet

The Hanging Planters of Hooman Koliji

Well, if you’re plant lover, but lacking the space, then think upwards instead of downwards. The hanging the planters is always a tricky job, because often need hardware in order to suspend them. Designer Hooman Koliji has come up with a stunning solution with Livi, a colorful “creature” that doubles as a quirky planter that can adhere to closely any vertical surface. The skillful designer has used 3D printing technology and recycled materials to make a colorful container, including insects like body and legs.
Therefore, the difficult job is to fix with window, so he sticks to the wall to innovative nanotechnology, by using micro-suction pads to make a vacuum when pressed against smooth, cleans walls or glass.  As per Livi, the Window is the ideal place to fix there, to easily get the enough sunlight. Indeed Livi planter is fascinating on its own, but 2 or 3 in different colors would make a remarkable addition to an ordinary view. Moreover, these days Koliji and his team are currently raising funds for Livi’s production through a Kickstarter campaign.

Broken Vases Stitched by Sewing with Gold Thread

Artist Charlotte Bailey constructs her patchwork vases by sewing fragmented porcelain back together. Brighton based embroidery artist has used patterned fabric and metallic thread, and her creations put an astounding new spin on the ancient Japanese custom of kintsugi.

Therefore, the traditional Kintsugi technique, broken pottery is repaired by rejoining the pieces with golden lacquer, which highlights the damage as a celebrated aspect of the heirloom’s history. She said, I’m very much inspired with philosophy, because it seems so at odds with our modern Western “throwaway culture” that seldom values the craft inherent in an object, or the significant and valuable social and cultural role.  Throwaway is bad culture, because sometime useless things convert into excellent object. 

Embroidery is medium choice of Bailey, and she has found a way to re-envision that exceptional ethos covers the segments of each shattered vessel with cloth and then stitches them together with gold thread. Therefore, resulting vases hold their flat original shapes, but with a newly textured outer layer and a few radiance, asymmetrical embellishments that add distinctive intrigue.

The Virgin Rainbow Gem

The incredible nature always produces an array of gems look simply out of this world. Opals, specially, have a mesmeric amount of visual diversity; however, some seemingly contain small fireworks hidden within them, while others look like a prismatic universe bursting out of wood. There are constantly new discoveries of these gems that are each more stunning than the last, like the Virgin Rainbow. This stunning opal made its public debut just last year in Adelaide, Australia.  The yellow, red, blue, black sparkle through this brilliant gem and as the light moves around it, the colors continuously change and mutate.

In 2003, minder John Dunstan has discovered Virgin Rainbow in the opal fields of Coober Pedy, located in South Australia. Coober Pedy is a mining town which produces about 90 percent of the world's opals. This part of world is so harsh that the town was built almost completely underground to give miners and their families respite from the extreme temperatures and regular dust storms of the area. The “Virgin Rainbow” has certainly caused the stimulation between geologists and intrigued onlookers similar cannot seem to take their eyes or minds off of this 72 carat beauty. The largest precious & most valuable opal in the world is recognized as the “Olympic Australis Opal,” named after the Olympic Games that were taking place in Australia the year the gem was found (1956). The Olympic Australis has been estimated to be worth more than $250 million.

The virgin’s Rainbow’s magical qualities make it a highly-prized fossil. Basically, it is technically an opalized fissil, the result of land that was once a vast inland sea filled with prehistoric aquatic reptiles. Therefore, once they died, they sank to the bottom of the sea and were buried by sediment over a long period of time. The sea dried up and the land transformed into a desert, where acidity levels and weathering sandstone released silica into the ground. This magnificent gel then hardened into the pockets and impressions of the opals, bringing them to this fossilized form.

Hence, many opalized fossils lack a powerful surface sheen, but this is not the case with the Virgin Rainbow. It radiates an internal fire, beaming bizarre multicolored hues that only grow more penetrating as the lights dim. Thus, you'll never see another piece like that one, it's so distinct. That opal actually glows in the dark the darker the light, the more color comes out of it, it's unbelievable. The current value of Virgin Rainbow is more than $1 million. Virgin Rainbow is precious stone has exhibited for the first time ever at the South Australian Museum in Adelaide in last September 2015, a dazzlingly colored opal about the size of a human thumb,  weighs 72 carats and is considered as one of the finest opals ever unearthed.
