2012 Designz® Cup

2012 Designz® Cup National Winner

Theme: Magic of Movies

National Winner – Lauren Black

Congratulations to Lauren Black from Flowers Design School in Perth for her high score in 2012. “I’ve always adored penguins with their cute little waddles – how could you not! My inspiration came from the story of Mumbles who couldn’t find his heart song and ended up on his own adventure. His love story, individuality and happiness when he danced is what inspired my design,” said Lauren.

2012 Designz® Cup
Anyone who’s seen Happy Feet won’t forget the penguin who felt compelled to dance.

His structure and components joined the queue of excellent interpretations of Australian movies that were judged throughout the year. Lauren threaded steel supports into a stone base to create a framework from chicken wire. She emphasised her penguin’s “happy feet” with black plastic which contrasted to the fabricated snow surrounding them and the feathers above. Grey wool, Chrysanthemums, Gerberas, Leucadendron and Singapore Orchids were woven or threaded throughout the framework to give texture to Mumbles. Cordyline leaves sprayed with Floralife® Leafshine created a wet look for his body and wings.

“I enjoy everything about floristry. Flowers are a big part of life’s greatest celebrations – they celebrate, give happiness, show love and brighten a day.”
