Much of what we know about ancient cultures is derived from artwork that has been left behind. There is also much to learn about a civilization by studying the materials and mediums they had access to, and the décor and pieces they formulated from these elements. One of the main resources available to peoples of all time periods are flowers and plants. From medicinal purposes, to food, to art – people have always exhibited an innate appreciation for the diversity, application and beauty of flowers.
Artwork comes in many shapes and forms. Some artists may use canvas, some sculpt in metal, and still others may choose flowers as their element of choice. The celebration of florals as artwork has been memorialized on the American calendar with the creation of National Floral Design Day on February 28th. Whether you are a florist – like the wonderful expert designers here at Bice’s Florist – or simply appreciate the art form, we can all use this day to share the beauty with others.
Tropical arrangements are a striking example of utilizing florals to construct truly compelling works of art. Their incredible colors and diverse shapes provide the designer with an abundance of inspiration and variety. In this display, the vertical lines of bamboo, the geometric interest of a bird of paradise, and the broad backdrop of a palm frond are presented in an architecturally gorgeous masterpiece.
