These flower arrangements were designed and made by our students under the directions of our instructor during real lessons in the classroom of California Flower Art Academy
. The title of this page is Crescent Arrangement vs Hogarth Arrangement. Hogarth arrangement is another name of S shaped arrangement. We are familiar with both European style design and also Japanese traditional Ikebana arrangement. According to our perception, both Crescent Arrangement and Hogarth Arrangement can be found not only in European arrangement but also Japanese Ikebana arrangement.
Take above floral arrangements for instance, the design in the center is Crescent Arrangement
. Designs at right and left ends are Hogarth Arrangements
featuring S Shaped elements. Both of these arrangements feature the beauty of curved lines which create a graceful atmosphere. According to our perception, English and Japanese floral arrangements often feature the beauty of curved lines although it looks like this kind of design is not very popular in American style arrangements.
At California Flower Art Academy
we often make arrangements featuring curved elements by using flexible green materials such as curly willow and bear grass etc in addition to ordinary flowers. If you would like to earn skills for making these types arrangements as shown in this page, we can help. Besides designs using curved elements, we teach a variety of arrangements by offering a Wide Range of Programs
