As in many things, a well-thought out base structure is a necessity to arrive at a good end result. The same goes for constructions and structures used in floral art. A construction, whether it's made from natural or artificial materials, helps surpass the boundaries of what is technically achievable. It can be used to give a creation a three dimensional or architectural shape, can add to or break down symmetry, help explore creative possibilities or simply act as a supplemental decorative touch. Masterflorists Stefan Gottle (DE), Frederic Dupre (FR), Patrick Jansen (NL) and Stijn Simaeys (BE) show how it can be done with flair, fun, inventiveness and elegance.
