Friday Evening Flowers in the Display Case

friday-flowersJenny Hermenze and Sharon McGreevy are the owners of Friday Evening Flowers. Each flower is made individually. They alter tissue and crepe papers with bleach, paint, or pastels, then cut each petal and leaf and wind them around a floral wire. The process is magical: what was once flat paper appears to become a living, breathing flower. They cut entirely by hand–no two flowers are precisely the same. Check out their work in our foyer display case during the month of September. Plants in the case include: white pine, Japanese anemone, foxglove, marsh marigold, white wood aster, fiddleheads and ferns and trillium.
