My quest led me to Sugarfina, a gourmet candy shop within the new Nordstrom, Vancouver. This is their main wall. Isn’t it mesmerizing?
Here’s a side pony wall where more flowers can be studied up close.
Yes, I got up really close!
They are hung with finishing nails and wire. I wonder how the wire is attached to the flower? What kind of glue did they use? What kind of paper and why?
Here’s my hand to give you a sense of scale of these beauties.
And here is the artist’s signature - a subtle emboss on a single petal of every flower. The staff there said the flowers were shipped up from head office, so they didn't know who made them. After some sleuthing, I found the artist’s breathtaking work at, Balushka at http://www.balushka.com/
I'm seeing an increase in paper for branding and marketing — and I just love it! Has anyone else spotted more quilling used this way?
Our sweet visit lasted a little longer because we couldn’t resist bringing a treat home with us.
