Among the most beautiful and plentiful items that India exports to the world are brass vases. There seems to be an endless variety of shapes, sizes, and finish. Brass vases and ewers are some of the most popular decorative objects. Nicely enough, they are available in a wide range of prices.
Today, I brought out a trio of medium-tall, decorated Indian brass vases that I have enjoyed displaying unfilled for many years.
I had the urge to create solitaire arrangements in a super tall format. The dark detailed vase suggested the use of a dark gerbera daisy. I took the liberty of accentuating the look with goldenrod and grass stems.
I wanted a special design to spotlight a vintage, tropical faux flower made of real silk. In this case, large, dramatic greenery placed inside of a pear-shaped vase came out exactly as envisioned.
The low-hipped vase got the airy treatment to display a dyed green lily. This works well as a solo room accent.
This arrangement also works well with an earlier contemporary design composed of dried elements in a Japanese vase.
