The Floral Artistry of Livia Cetti

June 12, 2015

20150612-073309.jpg I get excited when new things arrive at the shops. You have probably guessed/noticed this from previous posts. Just how I am built. Well, yesterday boxes arrived and I was so excited I could barely contain myself. The work of New York based artist/stylist Livia Cetti is something I have long admired. We have a few of her pieces at Hawthorne and they are some of my very favorite things. She is a master when it comes to creating works of art out of tissue paper and making flowers out of them. These one of a kind handmade flowers are crafted with hand-dyed tissue paper. Our first order arrived at the Home shop, with another coming soon to the 86 Pine shop. Pure happiness created with tissue paper. Style and simplicity.

Happy Friday everyone!
