Fun With Spring Flowers
In the last design we played with allium in foam media.
But now let's play with some allium in a water based context.
The problem is that the big bold aspect of Allium works against us in this siuation. It is so large and heavy that it could easily swing around all over the place when placed into a glass container in water.
The question becomes how can we control our media, when designing in glassware in water.
There are many possibilities here. In this case let's make use of a woven ball placed on top of the glass rectangle or cube.
This allows not only the placement of the allium, but also several roses as well. Curly willow is intergrated into the piece for more drama and visual interest.
Of course we can play with other variations of the same theme.....
Now let's change it a little. Let's now use only one rose, and add a loop of curly willow towards the right side......
Either of these pieces work well. But let's take it but a step further.........Instead of featuring these two designs separately...........
Let's add them together into one larger piece consisting of the two smaller sections.............
The placement of two or more sections to create a unified whole in a floral piece is an awesome approach to floral art. In this combined piece we've only used four allium, three roses and a little curly willow. Not all that much content.
Yet the overall result is a surprisingly large floral design featuring lots of negative space. This design is not for everyone. For those with more conservative tastes, consider a design like those featured on page two or three in this section. For those a little more adventurous, something like this design may be just the right thing!
