I found this square ceramic jar in one of the local second hand stores. These stores are usually a great place to find still life objects and inspiration. I think it is an asian style tea box. I combined the canister with oranges and orange nasturtium because the orange color seemed to go well with the color of the unglazed pottery and I wanted the flowers to tumble over the jar. I added purple cornflowers and some little blue flax flowers as compliments.
