Florists Review


 

“Strong yet graceful lines impart energy and vitality to these modern versions of classic curvilinear silhouettes, designed in equally classic compote and urn containers.”

For some botanical artists, line is an important element to kick-start the process of design. Line creates a visual flow through the arrangement for the eyes to follow. These contemporary interpretations of line-based classic curvilinear forms – crescent (“C” or “U” shape), Hogarth Curve (“S” shape) and vertical – illustrate how the successful creation of linear flow results in lyrical movement of life through the arrangement. NOTE: Creating successful lines sets in motion a process of flowering that requires a thoughtful application of design principles, particularly balance and proportion.

Basic

Classic Crescent
The compote is a perfect vessel for a crescent design. This asymmetrical crescent silhouette is initially “sketched in” with floral-taped Midollino Sticks “extenders,” then wired, with Bind Wire, to Forsythia branches and inserted into a kenzan, or pin holder. The structure is first filled lightly with foliage, followed by a springy combination of botanicals in a split-complementary color harmony.

Advanced

Classic Hogarth Curve
Tall stemmed compotes are the most suitable vessels for a Hogarth Curve design. This classic style features an S-shaped curve, or serpentine line, also known as the “Line of Beauty.” It was named after William Hogarth, an 18th-century English painter, who described it in his book, The Analysis of Beauty (1753). The curvilinear silhouette is created with a Midollino Sticks “extender,” which is covered with yarn, wired to Forsythia branches with Bind Wire, and inserted into a hairpin holder. The structure is laced with jasmine vine, Chilean feather fern and Genista, then loosely flowered to maintain some transparency.

Art

Curvilinear Vertical Design
Two half stems of Forsythia – one placed in each of two urns – and a Midollino Sticks “extender” wrapped with raffia create two curvilinear U-shaped uprights. Long pieces of plumosa fern are laced vertically while a collection of flowers is designed in a loose and airy manner into the armature created by the Forsythia stems and Midollino Sticks “extender.”
