Hey y'all. It's me, Hannah Lowery, Edges Wild Studio owner and curator. Nature nerd and lifelong artist. Out here telling individual human stories through the medium and muse of floristry. My team and I curate bespoke floral and botanical collections for wedding, event, and set design clients, leaning into the symbolic, and weaving tokens and gestures that are meaningful to the people involved into every stroke of our work. Each project has my whole heart, and becomes my latest obsession. And the weirder the better.
My proprietary style of arranging, known as "Folk Art Floristry," is rooted in sculptural complexity, nuanced colorways, unusual ingredients, and often surprising curio. It's decidedly non-traditional, and though it tends to skew more masculine than feminine, it carries both energies, often in a delicate balancing act. My favorite focal flower is often not a flower at all, but some other denizen of the plant kingdom: a leaf, a root, a branch (on occasion a mushroom, or a raven skull; you know) often plays the principal role in the design. And I like to create with the aim that finished pieces exist in harmony with their surroundings. I love it when it feel as if the work had always belonged, growing into its landscape or urban architecture overnight, each part working to bring a larger ecological (and anthropological) story to life.
My design style is characteristically intricate but approachable, highly textural, often "weedy," in cases where wild-landscape influences are appropriate, and my work almost always comes with a nature-forward twist; some nod to botany-adjacent disciplines.
You can count on naturalist overtones, urban juxtapositions, and probably literary depth, as well as curated palettes that tend to be painstakingly nuanced, with incredible attention to color transitions and the interactions between the different hues and tones that add up to the overall impact of the piece. In a word, it's very wonder-evoking.
