Flowers have always been an integral part of the cultural fabric of Thailand, and a constant reminder of the country's Buddhist heritage and identity. This stunning and refreshingly original book goes beyond the everyday: it elevates flowers from mere floral arrangements to meditative floral "installations".
Created from a combination of exotic and colourful tropical flowers, plant materials - fibres and leaves from the banana and coconut, culms and twigs from the bamboo - and unconventional materials like wire netting, the arrangements harmoniously blend strong, usually three-dimensional, structure with the sweet and subtle elements of flowers.
The philosophy behind the arrangements, the interiors or occasions for which they are appropriate, and a brief explanation of the techniques and materials employed will inspire readers to create their own artistic arrangements.
