Cultivated: The Elements of Floral Style
Vendor: Cape Ann Museum Store
By Christin Geall
Hardcover, 223 pages
Gardener, photographer, and designer Christin Geall breaks down the basics of floral style and techniques (past and present) for creating artistic floral arrangements.
Covering all aspects of floral design such as choosing plants to grow and arrange, selecting tools and vessels, balancing color and form, and photographing and selling arrangements, Cultivated offers universal lessons for all levels of practitioners, budgets, and materials. Geall emboldens readers to think differently and deeply about their work with flowers as she draws upon the fine arts and historical sources. She explores Baroque music, the paintings of the Impressionists, or the work of floral innovators like Gertrude Jekyll and Constance Spry. Geall also includes stunning photographs of her own lush designs to illustrate techniques for creating brilliant arrangements that spark the imagination.
