The Art of Arranging Flowers: A Complete Guide to Japanese Ikebana
The Art of Arranging Flowers: A Complete Guide
The growing appreciation of Japanese Art and architecture in the West has extended to the Japanese way with flowers. This book is intended as a complete introduction to Ikebana, the Japanese art of flower arrangement. Beginning with the history and development of the art, and its place in Japanese culture, we introduce the reader to the eleven basic styles. Next comes a large section devoted to vases, materials, tools, and methods. Text and pictures explain how to keep flowers fresh, how to select and prepare both fresh and dried materials, and how to make the most effective use of them. Twelve lessons in creating arrangements in the moibana style follow. I have tried to make this the most carefully detailed and profusely illustrated guide of its kind, enabling the reder to create many beautiful arrangements while learning all the necessary techniques of the art. Finally, there is a section devoted to advanced techniques and designs, both classic and modern, and to the setting of mood. Appedixes suggest ways to keep cut flowers fresh, tell how to make effective arrangements from one's own garden flowers and what plant materials to combine, and describe the symbolism of plants and their enhancement. I hope the reader will find this book enjoyable to read, easy to understand, and f...

The Art of Arranging Flowers
The Art of Arranging
A moving and eloquent novel about love, grief, renewal—and the powerful language of flowers. Ruby Jewell knows flowers. In her twenty years as a florist she has stood behind the counter at the Flower Shoppe with her faithful dog, Clementine, resting at her feet. A customer can walk in, and with just a glance or a few words, Ruby can throw together the perfect arrangement for any occasion. Whether intended to rekindle a romance, mark a celebration, offer sympathy, or heal a broken heart, her expressive floral designs mark the moments and milestones in the lives of her neighbors. It’s as though she knows just what they want to say, just what they need. Yet Ruby’s own heart’s desires have gone ignored since the death of her beloved sister. It will take an invitation from a man who’s flown to the moon, the arrival of a unique little boy, and concern from a charming veterinarian to reawaken her wounded spirit. Any life can be derailed, but the healing power of community can put it right again.READERS GUIDE INSIDE

The Art of Flower Arranging
The Art of Flower
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, a...
