Flower press

Measuring 8.75" x 5.25", and laser cut from Oregon black walnut, this flower press—a collaboration between Pistils Nursery and local designers in Portland—is small enough to take on day trips, but large enough to fit a wide variety of specimens. The distressed brass hardware and hand-drawn balsamroot add thoughtful detail to the durable yet beautiful press. It comes with enough cardboard sheets and velum blotter paper to create six drying compartments. Your specimens will be dry—and ready for mounting onto cards or into frames—in 3 to 4 weeks.

Wood Planter

We love the sturdiness of these thick wooden planters, paired with the daintiness of a succulent or air plant. Vessels come with a small glass planter and rocks for drainage and top dressing. Each planter is made to order and one-of-a-kind.
