Cylindrical …Floral Friday

An adaptable, basic, geometric shape is the simple cylinder. It works well when it is the primary, sole style element of vases. The cylinder is clean, simple, and minimalist. This week, I incorporate three cylindrical containers into the projects.

I really enjoy the industrial appearance of food grade stainless steel. This flatware container from a defunct cafeteria contrasts with the earthy warmth of a sunflower and assorted complimentary blooms.

There is a lot of heavy substance in the tropical plant elements of this towering arrangement. They are secure within the solid onyx marble cylinder vase.

The Japanese earthenware vase is home to bamboo plantings. The project is complimented with a faux-jade statuette of the goddess Guan Yin.


The Blue Jay of Happiness quotes Ancient Greek astronomer, engineer, inventor, mathematician, and physicist, Archimedes. “The center of gravity of any cylinder is the point of bisection of its axis.”
