Period Design – Chinese (Early AD – 1912)
Definition from the Australia Floral Art Association manual 2006.
“Flowers were arranged with restraint and an economy of material, in a naturalistic manner in harmony with the surroundings. Diagonal and asymmetrical lines were prevalent. Plant material should be approximately the same height as the height or width of the container with no overcrowding. Flowers and foliage should be in season and from the same environment. Flowers in a vase should be of one colour.”
