Garden Gallery: Alexis Tricoire Designs

March 2, 2011 | Art, Garden Travel, Plants

Teepees, pillows, light fixtures, giant sculptural hearts and shapes… none of these are outside of the realm of plant-able possibility for Montreal based designer Alexis Triciore.



While the Teepee (TIPI) is certainly fun looking, what I find most inspiring and worthy of trying to emulate is the shapely living structures that host plants and beautiful flowers.  I have seen a wrapped canvas sort of construction but short of asking for what are presumably trade secrets, I think to make your own will require a bit of experimentation. anyone have any experiences they would like to share with this type of thing?   Hmmm….perhaps this is another project for when the snow melts???
