Meet Mark Antonia  A pioneer in the dried floral revival, Antonia de Veere has created a body of work that can be seen in many top eateries, vineyards and boutiques: from delicately restrained, sculptural, fully hand trimmed and assembled Ikebana-inspired pieces, to highly contemporary textural pieces, from tiny vase based stems, to enormous suspended installations. Making hand-poured candles with bespoke fragrance mixes was a natural outgrowth from Antonia's floral work, and she is ably assisted in this by her husband Mark, trained in both Architecture and Object Design.
