We call this style of arrangement "Zen". Sometimes the descriptive name is more playful and sometimes more artful. We always take the design and the flowers and the delivery to heart.
This style is done typically in a low square container. The larger designs with more flowers require a larger container, usually a large black or silvered cube.
Always a beautiful display of flowers, the "Zen" is designed with the elements of design as learned by Peter in art school and when studying Ikabana flower design. It is safe to say, Peter has made the design his own.
Appropriate for all occasions, the Zen has a meditative quality that seems to be welcome everywhere. We have delivered the Zen for: new business welcoming, congratulations, get well, best wishes, thank you, sympathy and even a duet of Zens as wedding arrangements on pedestals.
You will find Zen arrangements scattered through my pages, but I'm trying to gather them on this page so there may be duplicates. This page is meant to make "Zen Shopping" easier.
Note: All photos are taken on the same old piano stool. You can use it for size comparisons.
