Fresh Cuts offers one hundred accessible and unexpected flora-arranging ideas inspired by foraging expeditions, casual nature walks, or strolls around the backyard. Now available in paperback with new up-to-date material on the basics of flower arranging and sources for and thoughts on containers, Fresh Cuts provides the most complete and varied guide to celebrating nature with arrangements.
The one hundred elegant photographs by John M. Hall and the informative text by premier garden designer Edwina von Gal show that one's choices for natural decorative arragements need not be limited to flowers. Rather, von Gal and Hall emphasize the intrinsic beauty of each part of the plant— buds, stems, leaves, berries, seeds, and pods.
The arrangements featured in this book are spare and simple, yet bold in presence. Among the many inspired ideas for fresh cuts are forced maple blossoms, privet berries, tulip pods, rose hips, red clover, and black raspberry branches. Tabletop arrangements consist of beautifully textured pods and seeds, the rich red stems of rhubarb chard, a single rose of Sharon in full bloom.
Von Gal's whimsical, anecdotal text offers facts, observations, and folklore, as well as practical guidance for the care and maintenance of the plants featured in her creative arrangements. Her provocative thoughts invite us to stop, take a closer look, and experience plants— either in vases or in their natural settings— in ways we might not have thought of before.
