Post-Modern Ideas …Floral Friday

For today’s projects, I chose tall vases constructed of various materials. My intent was to fill them in unconventional, contemporary arrangements. I wanted to push the boundaries only slightly. The end results ended up somewhere between avant garde and post-modern.

A Guanyin statuette accompanies a decorated, varnished brass Indian vase. Rust and orange colors ready the eye for late summer and early autumn.

Plastic on wires in terra cotta make a subdued composition. A turned-wood trinket box created by a local artisan balances the presentation.

The theme is heaviness. An African wood carving of a heavy thinker, accompanies a solid marble vase. Serious plant elements complete the weighty triad.

The Blue Jay of Happiness quotes Existentialist philosopher and writer, Jean-Paul Sartre. “Life has no meaning a priori… It is up to you to give it a meaning; and value is nothing but the meaning that you choose.”

  1. The statuette accompaniments are a nice touch. Especially like the thinker pose

  2. Again I love them all, but the first one, the windy look of the flowers with the matching movement of the flowers grabs me 😊
