Perfect Pair: In the Studio with Frances Palmer + Amy Merrick
As longtime admirers of them both, we were thrilled recently when a friendship between potter Frances Palmer and Brooklyn floral designer Amy Merrick sparked the idea for an afternoon spent shooting Palmer's new collection of made-for-terrain vessels with Merrick's stunning botanicals. An avid gardener herself with an eye for subtle asymmetry, Palmer's quiet Connecticut studio and pure white ceramics were the perfect foil for Merrick's beautifully unruly arrangements. Take a peek at the afternoon above and, if you're in the neighborhood, stop by terrain in Westport on Saturday, April 20th to meet the artists and see their lovely work in person.
