JamJar Flowers was based on loose arrangements of wild or garden flowers picked and arranged in a very unpretentious way in jam jars — just how we used to pick them when we were children. Over the past 10 years, our style has become much more complex and adventurous. We like to tell a story with flowers or to match our designs to our clients’ whims or brands. Whether it is a wedding or a press event or an exhibition, we like to feel there is a narrative.
For pressing, we like fairly simple flowers — wild flowers and blooms with simple structures. Fleshy flowers such as hybrid tea roses, tulips and peonies press less well as they tend to rot before they dry out. We love flowers with beautiful shapes, such as geum, nigella, hellebore and all the umbellifers, whose beautiful starry heads press beautifully.
