When the Florist Isn't Enough, the Rich Go BIG - PRNewswireSunday, February 09, 2020
Feb. 4, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- One successful bidder (or their lucky sweetheart) will be walking away from Palm Beach Modern Auctions on Saturday, Feb. 8th with a one-of-a-kind monumental Tom Wesselmann 'Steel Drawing' sculpture titled Wildflower Bouquet (One-Handled Vase). The wall-spanning spray of vibrant blooms was formed using a laser-cutting technique the artist helped develop, which allowed him to meticulously reproduce his drawings in steel. Painted in the highly saturated colors the artist is known for, close inspection reveals subtle gradients and variations in the color, perhaps a second nod to the irony of presenting such delicate subject matter in a material known for its hardness.

By Jessica Patrick, WRAL multiplatform producerRaleigh, N.C. — Fallon's Flowers isn't just the oldest florist in Raleigh -- it's very likely the oldest in North Carolina, owners say.

The longest-working employee started helping in the greenhouses 45 years ago and still works at the Saint Mary's Street location.Frank Campisi has managed that location for 20 years.

Floral Sothea Keller, rebels against the ordinary. Vowing to never make the same arrangement twice, orders are custom made and created to give each flower a purpose.

James’ mother and sister are professional florists, and Sothea has been in the business for almost 15 years. Working alongside her in-laws helped her learn the ropes.

Recognizing that the wedding industry is filled with florists, Sothea took another route—one that celebrates other important moments in life. After she, unfortunately, attended several funerals, she noticed that a majority of the arrangements fell flat. Seeing the same stark variation of flowers, shapes and colors, Sothea knew that there was a void that needed to be filled in the i... https://lakeminnetonkamag.com/rebel-girl-floral-arranges-flowers-wild-heart
