At A Glance: Recent Work

We are just about halfway with our holiday and winter container work. To follow are some pictures of what work we have done-and an associated before photo that gives a little insight into the studio process. 9 people are involved in every project from the start to the installation. Enjoy some of the highlights of their work.

I am very pleased with what has been done, and intrigued to see what is yet to come.

    WOW! Those giant silver/white pinecones are gorgeous! I don’t recall seeing them when I was in the store last week. How do you get them to stand up some nicely? On stakes? Love the way the blue berries read outside in natural light. I didn’t imagine they would look that distinct when I saw them in the store. Great job crew.

  13. Wow! I just officially went crazy looking at this posting lol 🙂 Somewhat at a loss for words not wanting to repeat what others have said….but some seriously amazing displays here….you do take it up a notch each time Madame Silver. Congratulations, superbly done!

  29. Debbie Clark says

    Love the tall red trigs. Are the bright red ones spray painted to be brighter or is that the natural color?
