Flower power for your sun sign


The floral arrangements were designed and executed by Indira Nadig, Padmashri and Bharathi. Padmashri said, “This is the international year of astronomy. So we thought we would keep that as our theme.

We have had two shows before this.”

Keeping with the zodiac theme, the artists had created each floral arrangement
using the colours and flowers in accordance with the sun signs.

Each star sign got its own table top design, a decorated pot, and a wall hanging among other things. While the zodiac was the primary theme, there were many other ranges as well. Everything from mug to sieves to lampshades to children’s toys found space in the exhibition. Explaining this Padmashri said, “We believe everything can be used creatively.” Nadig added to this saying “I use anything I can get. I have even used telephone wires.”

Talking about available market, Padmashri said, “In hospitals and other places, you can’t take real flowers sometimes. So this is a good option.

Also in these times of recession corporates can save money by using artificial flowers. It’s so easy to maintain. You can just blow dry it using a hair dryer or wash it. It’s everlasting.”

Nadig, the brain behind the show said, “I’ve always been doing something creative or the other. I was visiting my daughter four years ago in Florida. She asked me to make them for her. Then when her friends saw it, they all wanted it. I am independent. I like to make my own money. So I thought why not do this. My brother-in-law had a garage close to my house which we converted into a showroom. I use my dining table as the workshop.”

The artists said that they placed quality above everything else. “I spend a lot on the containers. I know it might be a little expensive but I won’t compromise on quality. I source flowers from Thailand. The Chinese ones are not so good,” said Nadig.

Friends and family banded together to support the artists. The event wasn’t lacking in star quotient either. Hiriyanna Haranahalli, Kannada actor, was at the event to show solidarity with the artists.
