CRAFT – Runner-up 2019
Pressed Flower Artwork
Made in Calgary
$80 to $600
Oxeye Floral Co. grows, collects and presses many of the flowers for its artwork in-house with the rest supplied by local florists. Founder Ayla Graham was inspired by her grandmother’s love for gardening and penchant for pressing flowers, and so uses flowers in her own artwork to convey a deep appreciation for nature. Each success, challenge and failure contributes to the pieces Graham produces. Oxeye also does custom work, including pressed-flower artwork for newlyweds from their wedding bouquets.
