March Experiments …Floral Friday

“The more constraints one imposes, the more one frees one’s self. And the arbitrariness of the constraint serves only to obtain precision of execution.”–Igor Stravinsky

The stereo speakers were putting out some Stravinsky. Stravinsky’s music is anything but conventional; so I felt a bit adventurous while assembling these projects. There’s nothing out of left field here today, just a tad bit different.

The first piece showcases an L.E. Smith art glass swung vase. A green rose solitaire is framed in greenery. The giraffe is a desk pal.

Three miniature containers display small plantings. The orange planter is by USA Pottery. The yellow pot is labeled, “Made in Germany”, and the miniature swan is a mid-century piece by Haeger Pottery.

The contemporary vase shows off a solitaire rose with herbal greenery.


The Blue Jay of Happiness quotes Russian (later American and French) composer, conductor, and pianist, Igor Stravinsky. “Is it not by love alone that we succeed in penetrating to the very essence of being?”

  1. I like the way you combine all sorts of colors in the middle display, including the wall color. Very refreshing.

  2. I love the last vase, and the flowers with it are perfect. Maggie

    The giraffe and orange glass vase really lead the eye up. But the pottery one is my favorite here, with the asymmetrical bouquet.
