For Michael Lanni, the art of floral design is a sacred process of receiving and giving. Receiving a commission presents the opportunity to work with the natural beauty of flower to create your sculpture. Engaging the creative process with this appreciation of beauty instills the sculpture with love and energy from this vibration. When you present the Volanni design, others will sense that you are not just giving flowers, but appreciation. To realize this appreciation in another is to receive the gift of giving. It is this philosophy of design that informs his art.
