The "Giant Bloom" floor vase showcases uncommonly large iris and clematis. Enormous stylised flower-heads embellish the piece from edge to edge. Abstractly arranged though they are, the flowers form a pattern. The interplay of intense areas of colour and empty white space engenders a clean-lined, inspiring modernity. The innovative and hence particularly challenging aspect is the need to master large surface areas and at the same time detailed drawings of fine veins, delicate shading and folds. The size is such that the realistic wealth of detail in the flower-heads is readily visible, an effect predicated upon supreme skill and artistry.
