METAL + MOSS florist in Portland, OR specializing in flowers for weddings, celebrations and gatherings.
We are lovers of art using flowers as our medium. We are observers of nature speaking in blooms. We create works of art that tell a story. Capturing movement and motion, life cycles and seasons.
Our aesthetic is like our philosophy on life: wild, fascinating and intricate. Our design is based on rich textures, intriguing and uncommon blossoms and modern color stories. We create environments and experiences with our floral styling, bringing wonder and joy to you and your guests.
Tanzie Hickory has been creating installations and visual displays professionally for the past 13 years. Her work began in Miami, Florida collaborating with local galleries and major fashion companies to produce both on large and small scales. Tanzie's passion and talent have allowed her opportunities to create in major cities from New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Portland.
Britlyn Simone has been obsessed with all things botanical since she can remember, playing in her childhood gardens, dissecting blossoms and creating bouquets. Her childhood fascination has become a driving force in her life and a passion that can't be tamed. Britlyn began working as a floral designer over a decade ago and has since seen her love of flowers take her around the globe.
Britlyn’s experience in the floral industry managing shops and freelancing for wedding studios and Tanzie’s design experience creating and building window displays and storefronts are perfectly complimentary. Tanzie keeps things hanging on the wall and floating in the air while Britlyn creates color palettes, sources flowers and flawlessly designs. Joining forces and combining the knowledge of two design oriented, creative people we created METAL + MOSS.
We have dreams of growing our own specialty flowers on a little patch of land we can call home in the PNW. Planting unique varieties of our favorite blooms (think old world garden roses that actually have fragrance!) and cultivating color palettes for upcoming weddings. In the meantime we work out of our studio in Portland and source flowers from our favorite Oregon growers who are committed to healthy and sustainable flower practices.
Thanks for getting to know us. We can't wait to flower your world! -Britlyn + Tanzie
