An interview with Alexa of CLEAR NORTH

---------------------------------------------------------------------

+ describe your job

design arrangements for weddings and various events, create floral installations and being surrounded in beauty that is constantly changing

+ what inspires your work?

collecting beach rocks, sunlight, color patterns in fields and gardens

+ what are the steps to making a floral arrangement?

for me they are:
:: creating a foundation or base of woody stems and foliage that inspires the
design
:: adding colorful face flowers in groupings and at different levels, showing off
the beauty of each bloom
:: finally incorporating the more wispy elements to create intuitive movement and
flow- to harmonize the arrangement

+ what is on your wishlist?

ceramic cups by noriko yamamoto, a satomi kawakita ring, just about anything from raquel allegra’s spring collection

+ what are your favorite local places?

plow (for the lemon ricotta panckes and cameilla blossom iced tea), mile rock beach, flora grubb gardens and anica boutique
