Studying live flowers
The shape of the blossom is especially important - the floral envelope, stamens, pistil, footstalk, and peduncle - as well as the arrangement of its components. We observe the live flower in its various stages of development.
At this stage, our tables are full of flowers, vases, sketches, pencils, and research books. We want to understand the flower as best as possible; only that way can it inspire us.
The final outcome? The idea of a model, and the designer’s ability to begin working on it.
