Mexican Day of the dead

Charlotte & I  will be making 2 marigold skulls for The British Museum Mexican Day of the Dead exhibition on Sunday 1st November. Her degree in Fine Art from Central St. Martin’s stands her in good stead for this type of project. Photos to follow shortly.


Stephen & I once made a replica of an Icelandic cornfield in a photographic studio in Battersea. That, too was a very interesting project. We enjoy a challenge at Stems!

I’ll be featuring food & flower fusion in the shop next week, including edible flowers – just to follow the theme of the TV show. Charlotte, ( little one) & I  are looking forward to dressing the shop window.

Edible flowers

We’ve been experimenting with edible flower bouquets over the summer. Violets, nasturtiums, herb flowers, ( such as mint, marjoram, rosemary and lavender), make beautiful bouquets. We are about to stock a range of edible flowers from Asia too. Watch this space………..
