Oasis Design 5
In geography, an oasis is a remote area of vegetation in a desert, typically surrounding a spring or similar water source.
In Floral design Oasis is basically the same thing.
It is a small block of floral foam that we use as a water source for plant material.
But as a contemporary designer there is so much more you can do with Oasis. Over the coming month I will explore and use Oasis (focusing mostly on Rainbow Oasis) in my designs and add a few tutorials as I go along.
My Oasis design series include: Prickly Oasis, my take on using Oasis as a water source, A Work of Heart, using Oasis to weigh down an underwater garland Hanging Garden Oasis in powder form, One Singular Sensation, carving pebbles, Crossing Boundaries, using Oasis to conceal mechanics and A Rock by any other Name.. for Oasis rocks

Twig waterfall creates the boundary between the “under” and the “over” of the design.

Aluminum wire (lime green) and thin ivy stems and tight bud lilies follow the curve and cross the horizontal lines of the twigs.
