Contemporary Stylings …Floral Friday

All three of today’s Floral Friday projects are both contemporary and impulsive. I wanted to express a modern flair with contemporary vases. The projects needed to arise at the spur of the moment. They were assembled while music from Jean-Michel Jarre’s spring 2021 release, “Amazônia”, played on the stereo in the background.

A large, exotic, tropical flower is the focus of a greenery assortment. The project is anchored in a large, department store earthenware vase.

Different varieties of greenery surround a red orchid plant in a table vase of Spanish origin.

The super-jumbo size spider mum and greenery are at home in an “18 KARAT” carved glass vase from Vancouver, British Columbia.


The Blue Jay of Happiness quotes 20th century sociologist and literary theorist, Jean-Francois Lyotard. “A work can become modern only if it is first postmodern. Postmodernism thus understood is not modernism at its end but in the nascent state, and this state is constant.”
