This week we have a recipe from Carles J. Fontanillas

Carles was born into flowers. In 1925 his family began a florist's. He is the third generation of florists in his family continuing the story of “Can Fontanillas”.He began his journey in floral design at 17 when he trained at the Catalan schools of Floral Art. Since then he has trained at seminars with internationally renowned teachers. He is the winner of the Spanish cup (2018).

He himself has also taught at workshops, seminars and demonstrations in Greece, Rumania, France, England, Holland, Scotland, Germany, Uruguay, China, Russia, Belgium, the United States, Spain and Catalonia. Nowadays he owns two florists, where he works on all sorts of floral decorations.

Carles is the founder, ideologist and promoter of FLOOS project (2015) and is one of the 'Master Florist' who publishes his designs in books The Crafter's Secrett. vol 01 (2016), The Crafter's Secret. vol 02 (2017), The Crafter's Secret vol 03 (2018) and The Crafter's Secret vol 04 (2019)

BLOCKS IN DIAGONAL by Carles J. Fontanillas
Symmetry or asymmetry? This is one of the main questions when we begin to prepare a floral composition. In this floral design recipe, master Carles was sure that he wanted to create a diagonal, asymmetric, design, creating interest with the movement and equilibrium of the floral distribution as well as finding tension between the elements and the whole play of lines and shapes. In this type of composition where the lines and shapes are what catch the eye and take priority, you should choose very delicate flowers and know what function each one will perform.

Collection: THE RULES OF 'JENGA'
LEVEL OF DIFFICULTY: Intermediate
Execution time: Less than 2 hours
Budget: Moderate

Floral tip of the Master Florist:

The active and passive movement in the same flower always adds an extra value and a sensation of life. In this arrangement the Clarinervium leaves create the optical weight to give the design stability and contrast with the flowers in place on the other side of the base.
