Christine de Beer - effortless floral craftsman
… but never done”
Lyrics from Incomplete by Alanis Morissette
Part of sustainable designing is designing with the entire life-cycle of your work in mind. Designing armatures is a lasting and ever changing design solution.
Easy way to fill test tubes and easiest way to remove water from a vase
When you need to keep a tiny stem hydrated this is just what you need.
When in doubt, always give your armature three legs. Two legs are simply not enough and four legs will wobble if it is even slightly off balance.
A great do-in-advance and reusable design solution for a winter, early spring floral display.
An easy way to create a neat curve in a very short time
When you glue a structure with hot glue there are always a few stray strands of glue stuck all over the design. Blow it away with a hairdryer.
Cut a few willow twigs to split to create legs for the armature
Frost a few twigs to craft a delicate armature for fragrant freesias
A creative design that has some height to it without blocking the view. This can easily be scaled up or down to match the environment you want to display it in.
