A single exotic blossom
shines amid a disordered array of branches.
Design by Bill J. Harper, AIFD,
In nature, it’s common for beauty to emerge from chaos, and that
theory is represented in this modern composition. Created with
chopped willow twigs, a 21st-century symphony of crisscrossing lines
serves as a complex background upon which the distinctive beauty of
a single Anthurium is showcased. A garland of Hypericum
berries, threaded on thin wire, and a few blades of lily grass
introduce calming circular lines that reflect the shape of the
Anthurium, Hypericum, willow, lily grass (Liriope),
bowl and wire from favorite suppliers.
This design was excerpted
from the book Nature Takes Over: The Designs of Bill
Harper, which features more than 100 botanical creations
with chapters on garden, Asian, prairie and modern design.
