Challenging oneself

My goal as a floral designer constantly revolves around creating beautiful innovative pieces while avoiding mediocrity.  When the product is so beautiful to begin with, it is easy to fall into the rut of just putting flowers in a vase and calling it good.  While it’s good enough for some, it’s never good enough for me.

This is an attempt at pushing the envelope.  These leftover flowers having been sitting in bucket, withering away, just begging to be transformed into something more.  I recognized and accepted the challenge and a challenge it was. 

The result--  a work of art?  Probably not.  A big mess?   Possibly.   But the point of the exercise is to travel outside that plain old vase.    Based on that thought, mission accomplished!
