Not a Green Thumb? Try These Geraniums

Not a Green Thumb? Try These Geraniums

Even those of us who are hopeless when it comes to keeping plants alive won't kill these geraniums from Portland artist Chelsea Heffner. Stick them in a dark corner to brighten things up, and forget to water them all you want. Or, if you do have some healthy houseplants, prop up the paper geraniums among the living, as pictured above. Check out the hanging version, and learn more about Chelsea's project, after the jump...

Chelsea, the artist behind plainMADE design, recently launched FOOL, an online marketplace dedicated to objects that challenge our expectations of art and design, straddling the boundaries between them. Chelsea is interested in the difference between products and art, and so FOOL is intended to explore this distinction.

The concept is interesting, and the product/art itself is also lovely. Read more about FOOL and explore the shop on Chelsea's new site. Each silkscreened geranium plant costs $40 ($50 for the hanging geranium).
