The perennial perspective within floral design is one of the reasons we love it so much.
A singular design can be viewed from numerous angles, by different people, in shifting daylight.
Because of this, we experience many unique vantage points while arranging flowers.
The same combination of ingredients can be reworked and arranged to appear entirely different. The selection of certain flowers may evoke a breath of nostalgia, while the use of others capture a wholeness, abundance or gestural wildness.
It’s an art of receptivity as much as it is a creative practice.
Through observing texture, color, and forms that surround us, we have learned to embrace the essence of the seasons in our floral arrangements.
Studying patterns in the natural world, we see how one flower leans on another, finding support for its delicately thin stem. We enjoy adapting from what we notice and have worked to express moments like these in our designs. If done well, we might even pick up on the resounding gratitude of that flower as it moves above the arrangement.
Knowing that flowers belong to an actual place, remembering that they grow towards the light, and feeling them respond to our touch inspires new possibilities of seeing and being connected. We’re constantly amazed by the exceptional and unexpected connections floral design has provided us. All of our relationships, old and new alike, have been enhanced by the presence and shared appreciation of flowers. Any hopes we might have for floral design, always begins with the flowers and grows from there.
