Description

The master floral designer inspires novices and experts alike in creating clean, classic, and contemporary flower arrangements so beautiful and original, they make the heart skip a beat. Paula Pryke, Britain's acclaimed master floral designer, sets the paradigm for excellence throughout the world--so much so that she was recently awarded an OBE. One of her defining characteristics is to go back to nature--to flowers in the wild, natural state--for inspiration and bold color combinations. In this book, Pryke explores the process of how to move from the source of inspiration to the glorious finished flower arrangement. She ties together key aspects of making a good arrangement: mixing color, form, shape, texture, and scale; being inspired by how plants and flowers combine in nature; using foliage and fruit for visual surprise; and much more. A separate section of the book discusses the ins and outs of tools and equipment, and the volume is rounded out with a catalogue of flowers organized into thematic types, which eases searching for the ideal flower--or alternates if the desired one is unavailable. Packed with ideas, skills, and techniques, this book explores the latest trends, encourages the reader to let his or her creativity and personal style flow freely, and is sure to inspire professionals and beginners alike.
