Please join us to celebrate Wysdom and her sensitive drawings. We will also have on hand all that we are up to these days.
Celebrating our time on Beacon Hill is in order, as we will be leaving our beautiful store/studio to go on the road. You will also be able to find us online and the stores which carry our work. We hope to have more of those stores very soon. We promise not to loose touch with those who have been enormously supportive of this grand experiment!
Cocktails, snacks, laughs, maybe some live music!
Enjoy and stay tuned...

Winter months are the perfect time to welcome nature into our homes ... improving both our moods and air quality. What better way to do so than with a beautifully mounted or moss-bound staghorn fern? These shade-loving epiphytic plants are named for their resemblance to antlers. Easy to care for and visually stunning, these natural works of art will be a welcome addition to any living space.
Field trippers will go home with their own mounted or kokedama staghorn fern, along with care instructions and skills to create more.

As we retreat to the indoors, what better way to welcome nature into our homes than with a beautiful mounted staghorn fern?

Easy to care for and visually stunning, these plants will be a welcome addition to any living space.
Field trippers will go home with their own mounted fern along with care instructions and the skills to create more. All supplies provided including a variety of wood mounts to choose from.
Snacks and libations will be provided.

Nathan Hards Photography
Starting two and half years ago, I embarked on the hunt to capture the allure and personality that makes up the world around us. Using a 35mm film camera, my photographs are taken in a quick and unplanned manner. These images make up a larger collective that captures the charisma otherwise overlooked by the busyness and commotion of everyday life.
THIS IS HAPPENING AT FIORAVANTI SOON! SUCH A WONDERFUL EXERIENCE AND ADDITION TO YOU HOME.. CHECK IT OUT AND ENJOY

Please join us to view Ann Hunstiger's intimate look at nature.
Beyond the Bark
Photography by Ann Hunstiger, a Beacon Hill artist, explores found images in tree bark. The artist looks at trees as offering gifts of images waiting to be seen. The images the trees hold are visible and invisible at the same time. They blend in and recede. They remind one to look at the magic and beauty present in every day life. They show glimpses of the divine, of beauty, grace, change and transformation.
We are excited to participate with our friends at Field Trip Society to offer this lovely experience in celebration of our moms, those women who give so much to our well being. As a mother, I can only say that if the kids are good, I'm good. So it is always a time to remember the mother in our lives and the mother in ourselves...
Please come and browse, participate and enjoy.
