I was recently asked to make an array of dried flower arrangements to dress a new show home, it was a very nice job for a very nice company, Zero C, and the houses look quite different to the usual new developments, a combination of traditional and contemporary, very much my style! They even took some Venus vases and decoupaged stamp boxes which sit very well in the room settings. My dear friend Ann Dickson, a local artist has lent them some of her paintings which work a treat too.
Here’s their promo video, see if you can spot my contributions!
Venus Vase No 8 was named for Flora, Roman goddess of flowers and of the season of spring – a symbol for nature and flowers. While she was otherwise a relatively minor figure in Roman mythology, being one among several fertility goddesses, her association with the spring gave her particular importance at the coming of springtime.

Venus Vases are limited edition pieces and celebrate the female form. Luna is the divine embodiment of the moon, complement to the sun.

It’s the time of year when I am frantically picking and hanging up to dry as many flowers as I can before the weather changes and the flowers get beyond their best. My house resembles a grotto of hanging beauty. I have recently added to my shop a host of various new dried goodies, from wee wooden embroidery hoops to wildly elegant huge copper rings.
