Succulents As Botanical Artwork: Bold. Dramatic.

Houston interior designer, Ben Johnston consulted with GWD to collaborate on an upcoming design show. Ben’s project was being showcased in the Glenbrook Valley Home Tour.  This annual event celebrates the retro designs of Houston homes built in the 1950’s.

Ben discussed using an incredible art vessel from his collection. Johnston wanted Glenwood Weber Design to use this container filled with succulents for his showcase. This vessel was a faux-concrete statue head that resembled an ancient artifact. Glenwood Weber Design  transformed this object into a bold botanical enhancement using succulents and euphorbia. It was showcased as a focal point on a round cherrywood table underneath a dramatic black iron staircase.

Glenwood Weber Design felt very honored to be a part of Ben Johnston’s showcase. Glenwood welcomes more collaborations between he and the interior designer in the future. You can have your home or office transformed by Ben Johnston at Benjamin Johnston Design.

Glenwood Weber Design brings Botanical Art Workshop to Houston area Design Within Reach Store

Glenwood Weber instructs group on Botanical Art in Houston DWR Design store

Botanical Art Workshop held  in Houston’s Design Within Reach

Glenwood Weber from Glenwood Weber Design led an informative workshop on how to construct various Botanical Art Concepts using succulents, epiphytes and driftwood in March 2016. The lunch & learn was held at the Houston Design Within Reach store located in Highland Village Shopping Center on Westheimer. The attendees were provided with the succulent plants and driftwood materials needed to create their own botanical art.

While Glenwood instructed the group each attendant followed along designing on grapewood and a collection of five succulents as he spoke. A few people in the class chose to use large glass vessels to create a miniature landscape consisting of gravel, twigs and air-plants. The end result was an art piece created by each participant which they were able to take home after the event.

Glenwood went to the DWR design store the week prior to his event and designed on large samples of driftwood, ghostwood and over-scaled glass jars using his own collection of succulents, Epiphytes and air-plants. Glenwood designed pieces for the space considering the tabletop surfaces and the surrounding furniture. He took his inspiration from colors and textures within the Design Within Reach furniture product line and created succulent art suitable for the store’s vignettes.

The worship was such a huge success that the Design Within Reach invited Glenwood Weber to demonstrate another succulent workshop at their store. Glenwood also spoke on a topic for a separate lunch & learn called “Landscape Love” as part of the summer design series during the month of July.

Glenwood Weber Design would like to send a special thank you to the Design Within Reach staff and sales to for hosting the workshop and to Collina’s Italian Cafe for catering. Be sure to support your local businesses and pass on the word.
