metal + moss is a collaborative floral design and installation brand based in Portland, OR founded by Britlyn Simone and Tanzie Hickory.
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. She is endlessly awestruck by the abundance of forms, colors, textures amd scents that nature creates. She uses a hopelessly twisted vine, an insect bitten leaf, or an unusually variegated petal to draw inspiration and inform her design. The less you fuss with nature the better, because nature has already fussed with itself quite enough.
Tanzie Hickory has been creating installations and visual displays professionally for the past 13 years. Her work began in Miami, collaborating with local galleries and major fashion companies to produce both on large and small scales. Tanzie's passion and talent has allowed her opportunites to create in major cities from New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Portland.
