Fake flowers (or artificial flowers, if you may) have always been very intriguing to me. I understand the practical considerations for preferring them over natural flowers. Everlasting, easy to clean, no need for water. And they don’t have this problem of reminding you of your own short lived existence. Nothing more depressing then a bunch of withered flowers… But their effort to mimic the real thing is so unconvincing , I always get turned off.
Instead, the Truly Fake flowers are not wannabe natural flowers and proud of their fakeness.
Based on drawings from the Spirograph, the well-known drawing tool, producing geometric roulette curves using a variety of gear wheels, the Truly Fake flowers cite real flowers, but without trying to imitate them.
