The Sun Never Says by Hafez
Even after all this time
the sun never says to the earth,
“You owe me.”
Look what happens with
a love like that,
it lights the whole sky.
Flora Ray is a creative floral design studio founded by Courtney Atherton. With a background in the arts, interior design and architecture industry, flowers are now the chosen medium to move and inspire
With all that we do, we aim to be kind to the planet and each other. We favour foam free methods of construction, recycle until the cows come home and work with local growers wherever possible. We even grow flowers ourselves at our Somerset studio and garden.
FLORA: The Roman goddess of flowers, fertility and spring. A goddess held in high esteem as the deliverer and protector of new and flourishing life. A joyful guardian to the circle of life, in flowers, crops and people.
Depicted in the art world throughout history, perhaps most notably in Botticelli’s Primavera and The Birth of Venus. Paintings which inspired generations to follow, none more so than my favoured era, romantic as hell Pre Raphaelites. Who’s artworks and poems overflowed with the symbolistic language of flowers. This was of course the Victorian age, where the language was gloriously celebrated.
RAY: Rays of light. Ever changing, ever present, our true constant in life. A marker of seasons, a warmer of hearts, a giver of moods.
