Isobel's first arrangement - Hawaii

Our first stop was Hawaii and for this design Isobel used a tall container made from rivets. Inside this she had placed a piece of green fabric which was visible through the holes and tumbling from one of the holes was a piece of coiled, wired rope. Dyed salix and mollucella were placed horizontally at one side, whilst manipulated aspidistra and fatsia leaves provided coverage in the middle. Rosa “Avalanche” were placed horizontally opposite the salix and some placed into cones created from aspidistra leaves. A fluff of green sisal and gypsophila inserted at the end gave a marine feeling to it and the finished design was revealed as Isobel’s tribute to the USS Arizona which forms part of the Pearl Harbour Memorial in Hawaii.
