chaotic beauty

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 crystal bowl.

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. Hardcover. 112 pages. $24.95.
