Today’s projects do not break new ground into the avant garde. Instead, these are dialed back towards conventionality with a bias towards contemporary style. They are done with only the slightest nod towards commercial viability. As is often the case, today’s projects are vase-centric–vase style strongly influencing the arrangement of the floral elements.
The medium-tall slab sided ceramic vase has an unusual signature on its base, “1>4h|”. I don’t know if this is the pottery company mark or the artisan’s signature. The floral mixture of colors and sizes were selected to mimic the vase’s faux mother of pearl detailing.
A tall, ribbed, department store, amethyst, glass vase features onion flowers surrounded by purple blooms and eucalyptus twigs.
The jet-black, Neo-Deco vase holds a posy of small flowers topped with a pair of tulips.
The Blue Jay of Happiness quotes Oscar Wilde. “In modern life nothing produces such an effect as a good platitude. It makes the whole world kin.”
I want to come over to your place one Friday and watch you create these beautiful arrangements. 😊 Maggie
I can always use some help. 🙂
😊 I’m not sure I’d be any help, just an observer of the artist!
