  • MY NEW BOOK HANDPICKED!

    I'm so excited that it almost feels like my heart might almost stop at times. On March 14 my new book Handpicked, Seasonal Flowers, (Abrams Books) launches in the U.S! The book is full of inspiration, ideas and recipes for arrangements that flower lovers of all levels can do at home. It’s our signature style, just a little easier to put together and with fewer ingredients.

 If you pre-order now, you will receive a pretty canvas bag with an image of my favorite flowers (from the book). Here is the link!

  • LARGE SCALE INSTALLATION CLASS

    Click here to register (click through to March once you are on the FlowerSchool site).

    So extremely thrilled to announce that I will be teaching two Master Classes at FlowerSchool New York on March 18 (followed by a book launch party on March 19). In one of the classes I will be showing how to create floral installs using chicken wire, flower tubes and eco wraps (such as the ones from Eco Fresh Bouquet).

    These methods require a bit more planning but as a bonus they are less harmful for the environment (by reducing the use of floral foam). We will also discuss and share various ways to re-use the flowers and/or plants after an event.

    
I will also be teaching a Master Class where you will learn how to create a signature design from my new book Handpicked. I will tell you more about that class in the next few days! 
In addition, all of the install work will stay up until the next day = March 19, when Flower School will be hosting a free(!) book launch party, with wine and light fare.



    Please follow this link to register for all three of the above (click through to March once you are on the site).

    Here also a description for the install Master Class from FlowerSchool New York:
    "Tin Can Studios has a renowned ability for large-scale installations from living walls, to hanging floral chandeliers—their work is always impressive and inspiring. In this session, students will assist Ingrid in the development and installation of two to three large-scale projects within the FlowerSchool New York space. Here, students will learn the process and mechanics for conceptualizing and implementing these larger projects that Tin Can Studios is so recognized and celebrated for. Ingrid will begin the workshop with a slideshow and Q&A of her past work. Class is limited to 16 participants. Instructor: Ingrid Carozzi."

    P.S. The list of Master Floral Designers teachers @flowerschoolny is impressive to say the least Lewis Miller, Emily Thompson, Matthew Robbins, Sullivan Owen, Oscar Mora, to name a few. I encourage all of you flower lovers to look at other upcoming classes as well! They are very fairly priced and you get to use a lot of flowers. Huge thanks to Cal Crary for all of your support ever since the get-go!

  • FORAGING FOR TV

     

    I was recently asked by TV4 in Sweden to come and do a guest appearance on one of their most popular and oldest shows called Äntligen Hemma. Of course I accepted their offer! So while Ashley and Jessica kept things running at the studio, I jumped on a plane to Stockholm.

    Once there I was met by two of my former apprentices, Hanna Piippo and Emelie Wallstedt, who helped me set up the studio (which Emelie kindly let me borrow for the recording).

    Next I went out in to the woods to do some foraging and scored some fern, rose hip, oak branches and some stuff I don't even know the names of for the show. In Sweden it is legal to forage (responsibly of course!) so growing up there this came very natural to me.

    Then we were sent off to a very generous wholesaler, S-blommor, who basically let us raid their entire inventory and load up three carts of amazing blooms.

    Finally it was time to start shooting the show. Little did I know that I was going to do all the talking by myself (no host asking questions, what???). I think it turned out great in the end, much thanks to the super funny and talented crew at TV4 as well as a lot of help from my friends. Here it is if you feel like seeing me arrange some foraged foliage and flowers in a vintage sugar bowl using chicken wire as a base.

    It is in Swedish of course, but you should watch it anyways, because the language of flowers is universal after all...

  • AURORA

     

    I am still weak at the knees. Takashi Murakami(!), one of our times greatest living artists, contacted me (again!!!) to arrange flowers for MARK RYDEN's gallery opening! Nothing makes me more excited and NOTHING makes me freak out more than making a flower arrangement for an artist that I love and respect. Dubbed the god-father of pop surrealism, Ryden is also one of my all time favorite artists.

    So to the flowers for the gallery opening… after calming down a bit, and after some serious debating, we decided to use his painting Aurora as our inspiration. We love the colors (or perhaps the lack of colors depending on how you see it) and we love the contrast between light and dark in this piece. Hence the light flowers coming out of the dark foliage + soil = dirt which we used instead of a vase (well ok, we also put the dirt on a zink tray…). In addition, we foraged a few ingredients, such as various sized dried pods, to add extra texture… and also because we always love adding something weird to our arrangements.

    The stunning 9 foot painting Aurora is on view at the Paul Kasmin gallery from December 10, 2015 to January 23, 2016.

    The flowers are on view… below.
