Three Materials …Floral Friday

For today’s Floral Friday offerings we have containers constructed from three different materials.  They provide their own particular qualities for the creative person.

The first container is a vintage hard plastic wallpocket manufactured by Bernard Edward company from Chicago. The Dutch windmill is constructed from a green part and two yellow parts.  I wanted to maintain a look of the Netherlands by using small pastel blooms.

A small ceramic vase has been skillfully hand decorated by artisans in Morocco.  I offset the cool blue and white container with warm orange, red, and yellow elements.

I have respect for people who can carve solid marble.  This compact vase was created in Pakistan. I decided to contrast the spherical shape with spikey branches.
