The Art of Chinese Flower Arrangement Hardback
This colorful flower arranging book features instructions and designs from one of the world's greatest living masters.
Asian flower arranging originated in ancient China where it then spread to Japan, Korea and beyond.
As influenced by the philosophy of "harmony between man and nature," Chinese flower arrangement advocates for nature to represent life, emphasizes composition to display vividness, and focuses on connotation to exhibit artistic concepts.
Gradually, these become the characteristics of Chinese flower arrangement--the beauty of nature and composition which are entirely different from the beauty of western decorative styles.
This book records the origin and development of Chinese flower arrangement.
Besides the principle of composition, techniques of modeling, and configuration of flowers and materials, you will also discover the methods of production and ten actual flower arrangement projects.
You can either follow the lessons step by step or capture the ideas and be inspired to develop your own flower arrangement artwork.
