Click on the photos to enlarge them. These are the design called Crescent Arrangements
made by our students under the instruction of our teacher at the classroom. In this arrangement, you can find tropical flowers and various kinds of greenery elements. The arrangement is made in a vertical transparent container. Since the way of taking a photo was not so good (looks like flash was not used), the color of natural elements does not appear so well. However this photo helps you understand what crescent arrangement is.
Crescent arrangement is often found in Japanese traditional floral art called Ikebana that often uses curved element to appeal the beauty of natural graceful lines.
This arranging method can be found in western style arrangement (European and American design) as well. As the world of floral art is getting smaller especially after the internet technology was introduced, everybody can access to another country's culture quite easily. This makes people of all over the world affect each other on their culture. Floral design is not exceptional.
Between Ikebana and western style arrangement, currently the border is less clear as used to be in some areas of arrangements. Floral artists familiar with European and Japanese way of arrangements have no difficulties for making this kind of design. California Flower Art Academy offers programs for European floral arrangement and also Japanese Ikebana art.
