"I don't necessarily think of myself a ceramicist. I think of myself as an artist who happens to make ceramics," says Erica Prince by way of explaining how she ended up developing a line of mind-bending, sculptural vessels. A printmaker and painter, Erica's also dabbled in performance art with a series of transformational makeovers, designed to help the subjects explore all the different facets of their personalities through makeup and wigs.

The story of how Heather Stewart Harvey fell in love with gardening goes a little something like this, as she tells it: "I was living in San Francisco's Mission and renting a work-live space with a backyard that was really quite a disaster in many ways. My grandmother was a big gardener, so taking up her hobby made me feel close to her - and I just really took a lot of pride of place in this little postage-stamp garden." Things really bloomed when she moved to Asheville, North Carolina, over a decade ago, got a real yard to work with, and threw herself into seed-saving and sheet-mulching. Here, her five pieces of advice for anyone who's ready to move way beyond a raised flower bed. READ MORE

If the sight of an overflowingly gorgeous flower arrangement fills you with both a sense of zen and despair at ever being able to create something similar of your own, you're not alone. That's exactly where Sierra Steifman was a decade ago when she and her Poppies & Posies co-founder decided to branch out from event design into florals.

I didn't know anything, but I gave it a try and just fell in love with it pretty quickly," she says. It's safe to say things worked out - now Sierra's known for her wild bouquets, and she also founded a line of gardening accessories and seed kits for beginners, called Floral Society. And! Below, she's doling out some solid advice for anyone looking to get started. READ MORE
