Pretty sketchy!

It all starts with a conversation. Whether here at the barn, over the phone, or at a someone’s home or work space, we listen to our clients and ideas bloom long before the flowers do. They talk about color, and lines, and feelings, and moods.

Then–occasionally in the middle of the night–Clover Chadwick takes her pen to paper and lets her imagination run wild.

 Sometimes, looking back at the drawings, you can see how the whole thing started.

Sometimes the drawings barely resemble the final she-bang.

Sometimes it takes scraps and scraps of sketches to get one vase into shape.

And sometimes the plan is thrown in the trash when the flowers come in the barn door and demand to be treated differently.

But it always starts with a conversation.
