Julia's Paper Irises

The irises bred by celebrated gardener Cedric Morris are renowned for their delicate beauty and unusual shades. Ragged flags in muted tones of coffee, cream, mauve-pink and deep purple ripple with colour in unexpected combinations.

Paper artist Julia Smith - a self confessed 'flower obsessive' who also happens to be one half of the FLINT team - has created these exquisite paper replicas inspired by visits to last year's Chelsea Flower Show, where she fell in love with the irises Sarah Price's 'Nurture Landscapes' garden, and to the garden that Cedric created, Benton End, in Suffolk.

Julia taught herself how to make paper flowers long ago when she was a child, having been given a book by her mother. Over recent years, she's taken up the craft once more and now sells her work via our website, through various fellow retailers and sends her flowers to collectors all over the world.
