Dried Floral (72)
Small Pleasures (11)
The interest for the flowers, it’s a part of me since I was a little girl. The passion, it grown years after years by seeing the happiness that can be brought by a flower bouquet received from a loved one or by the thrilling smell of a beautiful garden.
To nourish that passion, I took a courses in florist, then another one in Ikebana (Japanese floral art), yet another one in indoor floral decoration. I started to spend a lot of time in the garden, growing flowers, scouting and tracking their blooming, discovering new varieties, and then harvesting them to dress out the house, always looking for new ways to crystallize their beauty.
I wished to highlight the natural beauty of flowers that surround us and to show it in another form, more accessible, both in winter and summer, to oppose to the artificial side of our society. Dry out the flowers in press became a natural way to keep their beauty. I desire to show off the flowers by creating a decorative product of course, but mainly a functional one to be part of everyday life.
Progressively, Mosaïque fleurie has become a lifestyle. I had to dig, weed, landscape, sow, cut, divide, harvest, shape, press, preserve my raw material: the flowers. To keep all their magnificence, I needed to find a support worthy of their grace: the wood, a new ally. Then, I had to learn how to saw, drill, router, sand, varnish in order to finally create art pieces that are now the reputation of Mosaïque fleurie. Today, all those tasks form a whole for me.
Since 2010, I have been a member of the Conseil des métiers d'art du Québec and the Conseil montérégien de la culture et des communications. I also recently joined the International Pressed Flower Art Society and I am a member of Citizens of Crafts movement as an artist.
Mosaïque fleurie was born of a passion for flowers and a deep desire to share it. Welcome to my universe.
WHY WE'RE ONE OF A KIND
The Mosaïque fleurie has been taking a new approach to the art of preserving flowers. Melding the natural beauty of pressed flowers with the warmth of wood, Mosaïque fleurie creates unique pieces, both decorative and functional. The objects are home designed and mainly hand made.
There can't be two identical pieces of work because every flower used for the creation has its unique features. Working with naturals flowers imply to be able to adapt to them in order to show off their sublime beauty.
Every product is identified with a specific label which indicate the flowers varieties and the hardwood specie used.
Our mission is to offer unique high quality products which bring happiness and enchantment to the ones who get them.
Grown and picked from the garden, the flowers are carefully selected to obtain colours, shapes and textures that are out of the ordinary. The process of creation begins with the pressing of the flowers. The expressiveness that emerges in the pressing is what inspires and guides the outcome; minimal or sensual, classic or contemporary… More than three hundred varieties of flowers are used for this purpose, including many uncommon and remarkable.
In order to push its own boundaries and to further pursue the subtle play between wood and flowers, Mosaïque fleurie has been designing and fabricating the very wooden pieces on which its floral compositions come to life. We work with different hardwood species, many locals and some exotics. For each creation the hardwood specie is specially chosen to better fit the flower variety featured.
The longevity of the pieces is ensured by a careful blend of finishes that are at once mild enough to preserve the delicate flowers, and robust enough to crystallize the freshness of summer.
