Fun With Flowers From Israel


Isn't this floral design amazing!

Positive and negative space are part of the vocabulary of every modern floral artist. What a floral designer includes, and what s/he does not, and how these items are arranged, contribute to the distinct character of the piece. It is not only the flowers themselves, but the spaces around them that contribute to the creation of expressive floral art.

This piece is an example of linear or high style designing but it is very contemporary and minimlist in feeling. It makes great use of both positive and negative space.

The container definitely helps to set the style. It is a piece of pottery that is shaped like a triangle. It has a place for foam inside, and allows flower placement in an unconventional way.

The Israeli contents include the incredible xanadu foliage and green trick dianthus, both of which help to define the boundaries of this piece.

River cane directs our eyes to the left and upwards to the curly willow, which in turn provides greater height to the arrangement..

This design has only seven flowers, yet it is a very large arrangement. It is the way these seven flowers are placed along with the other component parts that make this arrangment distinctive.

We do hope that you enjoyed visiting this gallery featuring wonderful flowers imported from Israel. We hope that in these few gallery pages you got a good sense of the exciting creative possibilities in using these materials from Blooming of Beloit. From a relatively small budvase to huge designs in foam or water... from a conservative ivy bowl of flowers to minimalist high style, the possibilities in using Israeli floral product are endless!
