In upcycling, the miscellaneous resources that are no longer used are fully reused in order to transform them into something new. It is in this vein that Aurélien Guintoli was inspired to create Gipsy Queen. First, a foundation was made with a half-sphere in extruded polystyrene. The outline of the sphere was covered with pieces of colorful recycled fabric. He then stitched and matched many varieties of preserved flowers. Sunflowers, wild roses, craspedia, gypsophila, diosmi, chrysanthemum, jasmine, orchid, hydrangea, and physalis all blend together to form a vibrant arrangement.
