Trial Designs …Floral Friday

Consciously or not, most of us practice trial and error quite often in our lives.  We cannot expand our visions or skills without trying out new approaches.  I try to keep that statement in mind as I start every day.  Much of what you see on Floral Fridays are simply experiments in form.  Some of them “work” and others don’t.  I can only hope that some of the weaker designs provide starting points for future experimentation.

One design idea that may require expansion are small flowers in mugs.  In this case, a Delft beer stein from Holland holds a handful of brightly colored fill flowers.

Machined wooden vases are great for dry arrangments.  In this instance, a large “Y” shaped twig salvaged from the back yard is the mechanical for other elements. In this case one of the arms of the “Y” has a secondary “Y” that reflects the basic theme.

A toned, lacquered brass vase from India is the sturdy foundation for Peruvian lilies. They are enhanced with the placement of a few other varieties of blooms.
