The Studio and its Director
Edges Wild is the brainchild, day job, and daydream of Hannah Lowery, a lifelong botany nerd and mixed-media artist who is forever exploring the world through a process of attention-paying and creative experimentation. She brings a lifetime of both formal and informal study of painting, drawing, writing, dance and design (with all of their collective insight into color, texture, storytelling and movement) to bear on her current medium and muse: floristry.
Hannah’s aesthetic sensibilities are a twinge left of center, and her working mantra, with thanks to singer-songwriters Over The Rhine, is “against the grain and leave the edges wild.” She is constantly building out the studio on this aspiration, and is all-in on providing an alternative fine-art floral experience to fellow humans who are on the lookout for something different.
The values at the core of every Edges Wild project are beauty, equity, excellence, and wonder. To that end, the crew is committed to sourcing materials as thoughtfully as possible, nurturing healthy relationships with both the botanicals and our industry partners, and regularly continuing technical education in the interest of consistently producing high-quality work that carries a lasting impact.
What it’s like to work with us
It takes two poets to sum up the driving force behind our approach. First (excuse us while we indulge our inner romantic), we agree with Keats: “A thing of beauty is a joy forever, its loveliness increases, it will never pass into nothingness.” And furthermore, with O’Donohue, who says that “beauty enobles the heart, and reminds us of the infinitude within us.”
So booking Edges Wild starts with conversations about you. When we first receive an inquiry, Hannah reaches out to greet you and supply you with an online questionnaire that will give us a little bit of a window into who you are, what you need, and things that bring you delight. Your initial answers help us dial back with thoughtful follow-up questions and ideas, and kick start the process of assessing our fit as collaborators.
We typically turn a custom estimate coupled with a visual mood board within 48 hours of collecting all the data we need, and from there schedule either an in-person or phone consultation to go over the proposal. Based on the scope and scale of your event and its timeline, a series of meetings and emails will follow to wrap up the conceptual planning phase, and then YOUR work is done and you can check flowers off your list. We’ll take it from here.
In the meantime, you can follow along on social media for glimpses into the process, and for everyday loveliness. We’ll see you there!
