Another Grandi book for those obsessed like me - this one talks more about Saskia's love of flowers, and life, and why she has made flowers her life.
This book has a bit of everything. We get to visit some of the beautiful growers and their farms that we are so blessed to have in Sydney, and discover how they started growing what they are best at growing, and who influenced them to grow flowers in the first place.
We see some more amazing, intricate events that the Grandi team have embellished with flowers, including amazing flower arrangements set in ice, flowers dripping with wax, and fashion shoots, where unbeknownst to the designers are more about the flowers than the gowns.
This book properly establishes Saksia as the artist that she is.
Saskia Havekes is the person who has most inspired my floristry at Floreat. I use this book, and her other books, as my bibles.
Saskia Havekes is at the forefront of artistic flower arranging in Australia. Grandiflora is an oasis of beautiful blooms, sculptural branches and lush swathes of foliage at Potts Point in inner-city Sydney. Saskia's large-scale installations and breathtaking arrangements are luxurious and bold, stemming from a deep love and appreciation of nature.
In Flower Addict, Saskia shares some of her favourite floral moments, photographed by Nicholas Watt, who captures all the passion and originality of her work.
