WILD AT HEART
Melbourne florist Hattie
Molloy is enamoured with ikebana, the Japanese art of flower arranging, and the influence is evident in her eye-catching and unique works that are simultaneously wild and refined. There is nothing predictable about Hattie's work: she'll often mix delicate romantic blooms with tropical or even carnivorous species (note the trumpet-shaped, flyattracting pitcher plant, left). Her eponymous shop in Collingwood ( hattie molloy.com.au) is similarly intriguing, displaying orchids one day, bunches of bananas and fruiting branches the next. See her floral art @hattiemolloy.
