Wooden Lines in Flower Arrangemen­ts


In every piece of flower arranging art work, there are always the presence of natural wooden lines, notably branches of various plants.

Branches or foliage are multi-functional. In the hands of flower arrangers, they construct the basic framework, add more color and vitality to the flowers, divide space, and add layers to the whole modeling.

Wooden lines are also emotionall­y arousing. Different lines remind people of different feelings. Vertical lines create an atmosphere of solemnity and firmness, horizontal lines unfold themselves freely, tilted lines look lively, while wavy lines are very athletic, giving a sense of rhythm.
