BRAND NEW: Ophiuchus
We've got something new!!
Ophiuchus - Flower Constellation XL
Stylish arrangements in larger vases
Stylishly arranging flowers in a large vase can be challenging. You need a lot of flowers to fill up the neck, and it requires a skilled and artful hand to set the stems just right.
The Flower Constellations we developed so far, are too small for those large vases, which is why we got a lot of requests for a larger version.
We hear you! Enter the Flower Constellation XL: Ophiuchus
Spanning a maximum diameter of 16 cm (6.3") the Ophiuchus Flower Constellation is a perfect fit for larger vases, for example those for field fresh flowers or those vases that Dutch Designer made for that Swedish furniture company.
The Ophiuchus Constellation is not only larger when it comes to diameter, it also has wider holes, suitable for thicker stemmed flowers and small branches.
The thirteenth star sign
Ophiuchus or 'Snakebearer' is called the thirteenth star sign, because, just as the 12 signs of the Zodiac, it crosses the sun's path (Ecliptica).
The official period of Ophiuchus would be between November 30th and December 18th.
Because we cut the Zodiac year in 12 equal parts, Ophiuchus didn't make it as one of the signs on the Zodiac.
We did not foget about this constellation and by making it a Flower Constellation, we're giving it a place on our flowery ecliptica.
Flower Constellation XL
The Ophiuchus Constellation is also made of durable brass, just as its smaller Flower Constellation relatives.
Its size is a step up from the larger Zodiac Constellations and fits vases with diameters ranging from 12,5 to 16 cm (4.9"-6.3").
We're nearly there!
Will you help us get Ophiuchus out there?
We went ahead and ordered a small stock of brass Ophiuchus Constellations. This means that when you order an Ophiuchus, there's no waiting involved: We'll ship immediately and you can start arranging flowers right away.
The only difference to the final product is the package it comes in.
This time we're not actually crowdfunding for the product itself, but for its casing. In order to be able to sell the Ophiuchus Constellation in stores, we need proper and beautiful packaging, and that's what we're saving up for with this 'pre-sale'.
With your support we're confident we can get Ophiuchus ready for stores around the world as early as this fall.
