With flowers, shape is just as important as color. Today, I decided to play with the geometric aspect of my hobby.
The spherical design of a vintage footed green glass vase calls out for an echo as far as floral shapes go. A globular cluster of rounded, puffy chrsanthemums is the instinctive choice. The project is rounded out with complimentary colors.
Playful tropical blooms and leaves come in a variety of shapes and sizes. They convey a sense of wildness. The excitement in form is barely contained through the use of a formal USA pottery, two handled vase.
Any pretense of convention and simplicity of configuration was cast aside when I decided to use the Southwestern inspired triad container. The trio of poppy pods unifies the complex design. I carefully selected the floral elements so they would “play” a starring role in each of the pots, then work together as a whole. The resulting interplay of shapes is very experimental and energetic.
