September Experiments …Floral Friday

Instead of the usual three Friday projects, this week, we have four. The reason is that once I got started, there was some extra momentum to use up. I like when that happens. I fired up some Mozart on the stereo then washed and polished some glassware. Then I went with the flow.

A very heavy red glass urn, possibly Viking Glass, is the base for a traditional variety arrangement of small blooms. They visually offset the dark, weighty container.

I enjoy using the double-orange bowl for various projects. This week, orange poppies seemed like an indulgent, intuitive choice.

Another red glass urn is physically heavier than the first container. It provides refuge for a succulent and two cacti.

After photographing the first three projects and wiping down the work table, I got the urge to do something with the cocktail glass vase. A scattering of orange flowers decorate lively greenery. The arrangement provides happy closure to the floral session.

The Blue Jay of Happiness quotes multi-media performance artist, Yoko Ono. “Controversy is part of the nature of art and creativity.”
