Florists To The Field.
Whether it’s a skyscraping installation or simple centerpieces, they have a way of weaving greenery and flowers into textural structures that appeal to any occasion.
Greg and Erick have cultivated a 25 year relationship with plant breeders, flower farmers, importers and exporters, and markets worldwide. This book is a visual tribute to these connections in the floriculture world. Florists To The Field is the pair’s most ambitious endeavor and a testimony to their lifelong work. It highlights their unique resourcefulness that uses flowers to compliment different settings from around the world. And their relationships with the vendors, farmers, markets in those areas. Taking a journey from the deep south to the west coast, through the Midwest, and then across the ocean to Holland. Highlighting the places that they find the most inspiration, and their masterpieces created as an ode to them.
