Vintage Re-imagined …Floral Friday

While going over some vintage pottery with the feather duster earlier this week, the idea to use a few of the items came to mind. I chose three pieces I don’t recall ever using for Floral Friday. A Mozart concerto was playing on the radio enhancing the creative atmosphere.

A mid-century “Made in Japan” canister with modernistic patterned decoration inspired this contemporary grouping of flowers. The project took shape around bamboo mechanicals to add height and solidity to its appearance.

The black McCoy pitcher has been gathering dust at the back of the supplies shelf for several years. I don’t know why I haven’t used it for something until now. The simple shape of the vase lends itself to a fun, solitary gerbera daisy project.

A coal-black USA Pottery urn vase gets the traditional touch with seven large roses. The finished arrangement inspired me to place it next to the antique “Gone With The Wind” kerosene lamp featuring its painted-on roses decoration.

The Blue Jay of Happiness ponders a verse by the ancient Greek poet Hesiod:
“Potter is jealous of potter,
And craftsman of craftsman;
And the poor have a grudge against the poor,
And the poet against the poet.”
