“It’s new and exciting. I love it,” she says.
Gee uses wooden floral presses she made herself but says anyone
can do it at home with a book and some construction paper.
In addition to her wall art and wedding bouquets, there are also
Dandelion Fox stationery cards and locket necklaces holding a
little flower, a fiddlehead fern or snakeskin.
Clockwise from above: Carly Gee presses freshly picked flowers
between construction paper and two pieces of plywood. Her
mother’s garden is a favorite location to collect blooms. Gee built
this intricate composition as a gift to her father. Gee incorporates
insects that she has found naturally expired into her art. Gee
presses and reconstructs wedding bouquets, like this one origi-nally
designed by Dillon Mclamb, for recent brides.
