Some ideas have been trying to catch my attention this week. A few of those ideas relate to floral design. In order to flesh them out, I needed to tinker around with them. Three containers that have been idle for awhile were the basis for some experiments.
A mid-century revival hand-blown red glass vase needed just the right finishing touch–nothing complicated. After trying several different types of solo blooms that didn’t quite satisfy the itch, I decided to use these golden “orbs”. There is a certain space-age quality about the finished project.
The brown with fire-orange drip glaze detail is a “California Designs” vase. There are three holes on the vase lip to be used for suspension twine. The vase has been waiting for a suitable, period appropriate vintage macramé hanger. I don’t know if the right hanger will be found soon, so why not use the container as a conventional vase? This arrangement is suitable as both a table accent or a hanging display.
