The Artists Giving New Life to Fake Flowers - The New York Times
By the end of the 19th century, they covered every surface imaginable. Silk violets, peonies and bluebells were sewn onto gowns and ladies’ hats; vases overflowed with pink cabbage roses and spiky orange fritillaria made from cotton and wire. The flowers used for apparel were made in vast workshops where men wielded mallets and cutting tools to stamp out the petals from yards of silk before handing them off to poorly paid women, who shaped them into blossoms. By the 1880s, flower-making had become a popular occupation in London; one famous workshop was John Groom’s Flower Girls Mission in Clerkenwell, a Dickensian workshop-cum-social-welfare agency staffed by scores of blind and disabled women. Meanwhile, middle- and upper-class wives — not allowed to work yet expected to keep busy — maintained elaborate craft kits from which they made paper nosegays.

In the wake of World War I and Modernism, however, fake flowers were rendered gauche; women discarded their blossom-embellished gowns for Coco Chanel’s easy drop-waisted shifts, and stilted arrangements of artificial blooms suddenly seemed a poor substitute for the newly affordable tulips and daffodils imported from Holland. Faux flowers were pushed even further to the outskirts of taste by the tacky plastic versions that emerged by the late 1950s.IN RECENT YEARS, however, as paper has... Sep 7, 2020
A Garden Designed to Run Wild - The New York Times
This is an idea that has captivated Caroline Kent, the founder of the British stationery company Scribble and Daub — which offers letterpress cards hand-drawn with vibrant pen-and-ink illustrations — ever since she first encountered the gardens at Great Dixter in East Sussex, England, an ongoing source of inspiration for her, almost a decade ago. The historic estate consists of a mid-15th-century timber-framed manor house that, in the early 20th century, the architect Edwin Lutyens, acting on commission from the house’s owner, Nathaniel Lloyd, combined with a 16th-century yeoman’s hall; Lutyens also laid out a six-acre garden. In 1954, Lloyd’s son Christopher, who had always loved working in the property’s garden with his mother, Daisy Lloyd, and who had recently been working as a lecturer in horticulture in Kent, returned to the family home to open a plant nursery on the grounds, which are now preserved by a trust. Working from Great Dixter until his death in 2006, Christopher became one of Britain’s most pre-eminent gardeners and garden writers — he completed 25 books and had a longstanding weekly column in Country Life magazine. He was known for his willingness to deviate from tradition, once telling the horticultural writer Rosemary Verey, “a garden is a garden [and] whether it looks English or not, I wouldn’t care.”A view through the meadow to the farm cottage Kent shares with her husband and three young sons.Credit...David FernandezA timeworn fence, left by one of the property’s previous occupants, marks the entrance to the meadow.Credit...David FernandezGreenery encroaches on the garden steps, in t...
