Plum blossom is a beloved subject in the traditional painting of East Asia and Vietnam.
In Japan it’s commonly known as ume blossoms and often mentioned in Japanese poetry as a symbol of spring. When used in haiku or renga, they are a kigo or season word for early spring.
I’ve made my plum blossoms with polymer clay (fimo soft) and embroidery them over felt and rayon.
