A flower bouquet is a collection of flowers in a creative arrangement. The bouquet garni (French for “garnished bouquet”; pronounced [bukɛ ɡaʁni]) is a bundle of herbs usually tied together with string and mainly used to prepare soup, stock, casseroles and various stews. Flower bouquets became a frequently depicted motive in the still life paintings of Ambrosius Bosschaert the Elder (1573 – 1621). Eckhard Kremers’ bouquets are formed of paper streaks with various stabilizing materials. The hardened paper form is then used to prepare a mold from which the bouquet is cast in bronze or aluminium.
