These happened last night at about 11pm with a bad bottle of Rosé (its all I had) and a jonesing for a smoke....And I don't even smoke.
They were made for 2 different shoots this morning... I always get nervous that they might not make to the actual shoot.That they'll get stepped on (by me probably) or placed next to a heater and wilt away to nothing.
And while I'd like to (and will in due time) share a bit about each, I will dedicate this first post europe trip entry to Bornay.
Bornay is an awesome floral design studio in Barcelona that I had the pleasure of visiting. I've admired their work for awhile and was so psyched that they invited me to come hang out for an afternoon. Mi amiga, Zoe (who is rad. Thanks Zo), and I took a train to a little town outside Barcelona on the coast called Vilassar de Mar where we met up with Joan, Fatima, and Marta. We chatted about flowers, spray painting them (which I'm into these days), and the biz.
Their approach to flower arranging is really quite awesome. Its so creative and so unlike anything else I've gotten used to seeing...or even doing myself. Its modern but the opposite of the conventional approach to modern and I dig it.
Anyways, 2011 was awesome. So much happened. Hey, I started Fox Fodder Farm! That was neat. Thank you to every one who has trusted me, supported me, wanted to work with me, and helped get things rolling on what I hope is going to be a great adventure ahead.
2012 is already off to a great start and I can finally start sharing some of the unseen fruits of last year's labor.
Starting with... wait for it.
for whom I made a totally rad headpiece and some other floral accents this fall.
That girl is cuuuuuuuuuuute.
