Petra Blahova is a graphic designer based in the United Kingdom, whose love of “screenprinting, yoga and drinking beer” makes me wonder if she shouldn’t move to Portland post-haste! And based on her “My Garden” series, we share at least one more thing in common: a love of botanical design. Petra has used plant materials including berries, flowers and leaves gathered from her neighborhood to create these frozen ice letters. I think I’ve seen this same concept used to freeze edible flowers into decorative ice cube garnishes for iced tea or summer cocktails. How cool would it be to combine the ideas to spell out a word in the punch bowl at your next garden party? Matt Mattus, I’m looking it you!
