Cultivated: The Element of Floral Style
Elevating floral design to fine art, this is a richly informative work on the principles of floral style. Christin Geall in a charming and intelligent manner, emboldens designers, gardeners, and entrepreneurs to reappraise and consider in a more profound way their work with flowers. She draws upon the fine arts and historical sources exploring Baroque music, the paintings of the Impressionists, and the work of floral innovators like Gertrude Jekyll and Constance Spry to name a few of the inspirations that her audience can take inspiration from.
Covering all aspects of floral design, including choosing plants to grow and arrange, selecting tools and vessels, balancing color and form, and even photographing and selling arrangements, Cultivated offers universal lessons for all levels of practitioners, budgets, and materials. Geall's stunning photographs of her own lush designs illustrate techniques for creating brilliant arrangements that spark the imagination.
