Haeger Foundations …Floral Friday

It’s been too long since I’ve posted an all Haeger vase, Friday post, so today I’ll touch base with that idea. Pottery from the defunct Dundee, Illinois company has been a mainstay of the supply shelf inventory for well over a decade. Haeger Potteries, Inc. had been in business for two-years over a decade when they closed in 2016. There are still many beautiful pieces available on the second-hand market for pottery collectors and florists to choose from.

Three pieces from my shelf were dusted off for this week’s experiments. The avocado green, basic vase is home to a handful of orange Gerbera daisies. A light green succulent plant provides a stark contrast to the flowers and a compliment to the vase’s glaze.

The industrial grey Swordfish vase is from the Royal Haeger collection–a line of pottery from artisan/designer Royal Hickman. A row of rich, red ranunculus provides warmth to the cool toned container.

The cube planter has been an inspiration for many past projects. This week, bamboo takes center-stage for a meditation themed arrangement.

The Blue Jay of Happiness quotes theologian and former leader of the YMCA, John Mott. “Extreme nationalism and Bolshevism have broken up the old world, a new world is in the making. It is literally true that old things are passing away; all things may become new, granted we have wise, unselfish, and determined guides.”
