By bending, twisting, tying, wrapping, and contorting flowers into the most delightfully unexpected shapes, Ost creates works of art that transcend the boundaries of conventional flower arranging. Borrowing all kinds of natural elements -- from leaves to roots to fruits to vines -- his installations often share an affinity with contemporary artists such as Andy Goldsworthy, Issey Miyake, and Richard Serra.For each creation he often chooses to work with only one plant, playfully repeating its form until it emerges with a new identity- the traditional bouquet rarely crops up. The results are astounding in their originality and are sure to inspire professional florists, gardeners, designers, and anyone who loves flowers. Now, in one of the most magnificently photographed and printed books in years, his fleetingly beautiful sculptures are captured for all to examine and enjoy.
