Wire Manipulation for Contemporary Flower Arrangers

Contemporary Floral design - Wire Manipulation

 

When Gill first started creating floral designs – the use of wire was only considered to be suitable for support, anchorage and control. Wires were often hidden; external wires were taped and copper frames mossed.

Now with so many decorative wires available their uses have increased and are now often used to aid distinction, create visible supporting frameworks, and to enhance the look of a vase or a flower.


Many contemporary techniques require the use of wire and with so many attractive wires available Gill shows you how wire can now be used often to add visible enhancement; banding, binding, bundling, caging, clamping, clustering, cupping, framing, inter connecting, knotting, laminating, looping, mossing, pipping, plaiting, radiating, sculpturing, spiralling, stitching, structure construction, threading, veiling, weaving, winding, wrapping and of course wiring.
