Balance, Proportion, & Scale
Transcript of Balance, Proportion, & Scale
The quality of a floral arrangement that gives a sense of equilibrium & repose.
This is also called mechanical balance.
Every floral arrangement relies on visual balance to provide a sense of equilibrium.
This type of balance is predominantly formal & dignified in feeling.
This means the floral arrangement needs to be mechanically sound to independently stand on its own, to be stable & self-supporting.
This is the simplest type of visual balance to recognize & create. They display immediate balance & conveys a restful, peaceful sensation.
When identical flowers & foliage are arranged & repeated in the same position on either side of the imaginary central vertical axis.
Symmetrically balanced floral designs contrast with nature & often appear stiff & contrived.
This is achieved by placing unequal visual weight on each side of a central vertical axis.
More subtle than symmetrical balance & is referred to as optical balance.
The effect with asymmetrical balance is more casual, natural, & informal. This is why asymmetrical balance is often called informal balance.
This type of visual balance all the elements of a floral design radiate or circle out from a common central point.
This is common in contemporary, abstract, & oriental arrangements.
This uses material throughout a design in a more relaxed & unstructured manner, with plenty of "open" areas.
This generally describes the relationship of 1 part of a floral design to the other parts as well as to the whole.
Another word for size & refers to the overall size of an object compared with other objects.
The container is important part of scale & proportion. Its size and shape help determine the size and shape of the entire design.
An arrangement must fit on a table physically and visually, and at the same time be in proportion to the surrounding area.
