Antonio Bond doesn't exactly scream "florist" at first glance.

Born into a family of artists and pickers, the bearded, tatted-up Texan has spent a lifetime roaming roadsides and riverbeds, collecting the surprising vessels that anchor his hauntingly beautiful floral sculptures: animal bones, driftwood, religious effigies, meat grinders.

In 2017, he partnered with Blue Star Press to immortalize his fleeting creations in a stunning, startling coffee table book. In honor of the release, we helped him share his incredible story with lifestyle and design media in Texas and across the country.
