Last year I had the pleasure of creating my best-smelling piece to date as part of the @studio_enti Dinner Series for @cityofsydney
The inspiration for the food, music, stoneware and the installation all came from the idea of stealing, foraging and borrowing. Recipes were stolen, stoneware was woven with elements from nature, music was Thievery Corp and the installation borrowed ingredients from the dinner and foraged others.
Key plants in this one were cherry blossom, crab apple branches, rosemary, mint and others I can't even remember.

What a beautiful image of our styled shoot at the most beautiful @kirtlingtonpark Stunning image from @poppycarterportraits I love the blush and classic look. Creating the floral canopy on these beautiful glass vases from @weddingdayhire it definitely gives it a luxurious feel. Loved every minute of it. Thank you to the rest of the team for all their amazing contributions.
You asked to see more plant-based installations so I thought I'd bring it back to the beginning. How my obsession with plants and hands (and rocks) may have started. When I was in preschool playing in the playground, someone tried to pass me a flower and obviously I was so mesmerised by it I lost my balance, fell out of the little house I was playing in and landed chin first on a massive rock that split my chin open. I probably thought it was worth it to have grabbed the flower 😉
So now you know why I have a huge scar on my chin, why my jaw doesn't align and why I am obsessed with rocks and flowers and HANDS .
Thanks to @damienmilan_photographer for capturing this in an image for my residency and solo show at Chrissie Cotter Gallery in Camperdown.
As I get ready to build a five metre long installation out of native plants for the Newtown Artseat, I'm reflecting on this suspended installation I built for @courtesyoftheartistloft@courtesyoftheartist a little while back. .
I love giant statement pieces but in this case, less was definitely more as the tiny bunches of foliage sat in amongst hundreds of brass, copper and white powdercoated metal hand sculptures and cast the wildest shadows and twinkles. .
The stunning Apoorva as she makes her bridal entrance under our Garden Themed Chaadar. I just love the colours. Be sure to check out her page @apoorvashennaworks for henna services.

What a Beautiful flower ‘cloud’💚 from our flower friend @robert_bartolen
I still remember back when I first started my flower journey in 1994 when ‘’Baby’s breath’’ was just used as a filler!
Almost 26 years later it’s been used mainly as a focal point of designs. .
We all know that fashion and design change with time and we certainly have to change, to stay in the GAME!!😃

Over head displays are one of the most time consuming & detailed decor structure's to put together. It is the centrepiece for the whole event. This particular display had colured foliage which was sprayed before hand & flowers with birds and butterflies to give the desired finishing. It was completed with a big printed rainforest dance floor which brought the whole look to life!
