Blossoms as Sculpture

A single blossom is magic.

A group of blossoms gathered to form a bouquet becomes
a most enchanting sculpture.
I'm loving this group of three. Each container holding a group of the same
leaves or flowers .. .. . the group then becomes a dramatic still life.
This bouquet takes the simplicity of contrasting the scale and form
to perfection. The repetition of the small round berries creates a tension
to allow those glorious lillies to explode.

I love bursts of green like that. I sometimes use just fresh herbs in old bottles on the table. So inexpensive - perfect recession arrangements. I love the way the bouquet in the first photo fits into that unusual vase. Looking forward to your series.

I love the compositions of the flowers, leaves and vases. The green leaves against the white flowers accentuated with the clear vases is fantastic.
