This summer I had the pleasure of revisiting Paris. I’ll be honest, I’ve had mixed feeling about past trips for whatever reasons, but this time around I was smitten. Maybe this was because of the perfect weather, or perhaps because I was with great friends. On one of these beautiful days my besty Charlie and I went to the famous Pere-Lachaise Cemetery -- the final resting place for such legends as Edith Piaf, Oscar Wilde, Jim Morrison, and Maria Callas. I had been here once before nearly 20 years ago during a semester study abroad, so it was interesting to see how my experience differed from the first time around. Rather than scrambling to check off names of the dead and famous, I found myself obsessing on one type of repeated ornamentation: porcelain flower wreathes. The more faded and aged they had become, the more beautiful they were to me. I suppose I was so drawn to them because I am both a craft and floral designer -- hopefully they will inspire a future project for the show. Anyway, take a look and please share any insight or personal experiences you may have with them.
