As a prolific designer Gill thought it would be exciting to design a range of living vases, screens and structures, using fresh foliage, which are either in water or in water retaining materials that can be used to display and enhance contemporary floral designs.

Gill spent a year designing and developing her new range of living vases, screens and structures; some of which she has already taught in selected workshops.

As the majority of the foliage selected is evergreen, the vases, screens and structures very often out live the flowers!

The reader is provided with instructions in both written narrative and pictorial stages of development, using over 160 photographs, of how to make each living vase, screen or structure for both floral designers and florists.

Gill thoroughly enjoyed making this book as she was able to specialise in how to use foliage in floral design to create distinction and wishes you as much pleasure when reading through this new flower arranging book.
