  • Some of the Learnings Gained and Applied

    • The line system/organisation of materials is more consistent – parallel.
    • The distribution is well handled with varying areas of interest that contribute to effective rhythm.
    • There is a good access point into the composition – the main focal area/area of interest.
    • A main area of interest had been established.
    • The different vase choice elevates the presence of the glass.
  • About the Designer

    Retirement has provided my creative spirit an opportunity to bloom - a lifelong passion for flowers has been the connection.
