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.
