Designing to Win Gallery - Glass & Grass

Hannah Bleckley

As part of Flower Thinking's Designing to Win program, floral designers responded to a competition-style schedule with the theme Glass & Grass.

Here is one submission from UK floral designer Hannah Bleckley, with a glimpse of the learnings that were gained and applied.

Glass & Grass - Hannah Bleckley

The first inspiration was the hoop, this then led the design shape followed by the blue bottle linking to the blue Eryngium sp.

  • Some of the Learnings Gained and Applied

    • The glass and grass are both more evident, with the reduced colour palette and material quantity. Even more grass would strengthen the interpretation and balance between the glass and grass.
    • More decisive proportions.
    • Enhanced presence of glass and grass.
    • Changing of the footprint to better fit the environment.
