Incase you missed it – we sat down with Joseph Massie last year and talked with him about his extraordinary career and influence in the flower world.
Frequently referred to by the media as ‘the floral artist of his generation’, Joseph Massie is widely regarded as one of Europe’s top botanical artists. Aged just fourteen, Joseph desperately wanted a weekend job, and after successfully applying to the local flower stall, he began working spending his weekends working in his hometown of Liverpool, UK.
Since we last spoke to Joe he has been busy producing a beautiful book to help empower florists which includes step by step guides on floral creations and recipes and tips for creating with flowers.
We were delighted to have been a part of this special book by donating our roses for Joseph to use and design an incredible installation to inspire the floral industry.
Read on below about his new book and how our roses became part of this special journey.
