It was an exiting first day of Fleurop Interflora World Cup competition. All competitors had to do two tasks. Starting of with a surprize item in the morning and in the afternoon the first task the competitors had prepared beforehand. Titled, ‘100% Personal’.
Flowerweb and it team was right there and worked with the organisation to make sure we not only show you the end results but also the story behind the creations and techniques used told by the competitors themselves.
Below you can see the results from competitor Ni Zhi Xiang from China
On our Fleurop - Interflora event page you can see the floral designs from the other competitors.
All contestants were given a surprise assignment which was called "100% Dianthus". They had 4 hours preperation time and 90 minutes time to actually finish the assigment with flowers.
The main ingredients of this assigment:
All competitors recieved the same metal construction.
All competitors were free to use as many of the provided materials as they want.
The main focus in the overall design should be on Dianthus flowers.
It's a fair assignment , everyone the same. Though not ideal; I didn't really like the flowers. But in the end it worked for me.
Day 1: First competition task: 100% personal
The first World Cup task is all about the personality of the finalists. Free of the compulsion to observe rules or conventions, the individual work pieces should reflect the different facets of their characters.
I like to be free; I don't like to be tied up and directed by others...the frame metal chains and metal spikes symbol a cage for me and I'm the nest.
I want to break the frame and be free. I want to be free and fly and don't want to be in the frame. I was emotionally touched by the piece and cried when I finished this piece.
