MATTER + FLOWER { THE RED BEAR }

Red Bear Detail

 

This arrangement has some plant material I don’t come across too often; Castor Beans. They’re the bright red pods on stems shooting out of this arrangement. Jack, one of our suppliers at the shop I work at, brought them by. I couldn’t resist. Castor Beans, besides being quite striking, are deadly poisonous when consumed in large quantities. I thought I’d off-set their malevolence with a charming sprinkling of fragrant Eucalyptus and the leaves of the ethereal smokebush.
