Large Vases …Floral Friday

The past few months have seen my projects emerge from medium and small sized containers, so it seems to be the right time to use a few large vases for a change. They’re not large enough to be conventional floor vases, but they could substitute for them in a pinch.

The red-orange two-handled Haeger vase has a complex design and pattern. For contrast, a very simple tropical flower of a similar color is all that is needed for an eye-catching formal presentation.

A very simple egg-shaped Royal Haeger vase calls for a complicated arrangement. Again, tropicals contrast with the container. They also warm up the cool whiteness of the container’s glaze.

A large mid-century vase by Carstens Tonnieshoff of West Germany has a typical drip glaze. The earthy colors call for a tall array of dry materials and grasses. A peacock feather is the finishing touch.

The Blue Jay of Happiness likes this line from Albert Camus: “Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.”
