My floral design will represent the family through the ties we have with our ancestors and how we become who we are through our heritage of family ties.
Floral piece made from grapevine and tree branches and heritage roses to represent roots of our family tree. Roots will be tangled ,uprooted and twisted with different faces carved throughout the piece to represent the ancestors
This piece will branch out and bloom where some family lines flourish and appear with moss and like it is now in decay and nourishing the other parts where some blood lines that have struggled but still serve a purpose
