Bohemian glass is hand-blown by Czech glassblowers from a special composition, which includes not only sand, but also metal oxides, so it is light and crystal clear, just like crystal has reflections in the sun. Different metals are added to the glass to give it a color from red, green to blue and azure, and they also use a new technology to burn different shades on the glass itself.
Flower vases are chosen according to several criteria.
Shape and size
The shape and size of the crystal vase determines which colors it is suitable for. Vases of the following shapes are made from Czech crystal.
A ball with a wide or narrow neck. This shape is ideal for lush flower arrangements, provided that the plants that make up them have short stems. Narrow-necked containers are best used for multicolored peas and other decorative loaches. In this case, the stems will be freely located inside the «ball», not touching and not interfering with each other. At the same time, lush inflorescences will form a voluminous bouquet. Wide-necked «balls» are best used for short-cut gerberas, lilies and other plants with lush, voluminous heads.
Medium height models with widened throat. Look great with voluminous, lush floral arrangements. Plant stems should be of medium length. These can be peonies, lilies, tulips. If the buds have not yet opened, there will be enough room for them to form flowers. Arrange the flowers in a circle, placing the stems in the water to maintain a slight angle. This will allow you to get a beautiful slope, the bouquet will take on the shape of a hemisphere.
Rectangular shape. According to the specialists of the Bohemia salon (Moscow), it goes well with unusual or bright floral arrangements, flowers with a complicated shape. Daffodils, amaryllis will look great inside them. To make the bouquet look neat, distribute it around the edges of the container, keeping the stems slightly tilted from the center. Several plants can be placed vertically in the middle.
Cylinder. A simple shape that enhances the beauty of large flowers. Peonies, lush hydrangeas, decorative sunflowers are perfect for such vases. You should not put many flowers in cylindrical containers — it is better if the stems are inside freely.
