100th Anniversary, Corpse Flower and Fly, Oh My July 8, 2019 23:33
Our friends at the Huntington Library, Art Collection and Gardens have a lot of great things coming up this year. They are expecting the blooming of the rare tropical Corpse Flower and they will be celebrating their 100th anniversary. In order to create some great keepsakes, to commemorate such great milestones, they asked us here at B. Berish, to put together a collection of enamel pins to represent these exciting events.
So, if your not familiar with the Corpse Flower, scientifically known as Amorphophallus titanum, it's the largest flowering plant in the world. Blooming outside of it's natural habitat is a rare event, so when it happens, it's a big deal. The other thing that's a big deal about this big flower, is that it creates a big stink. Some folks think it's a badge of courage to be able to stand down wind. The stench has been compared to the smell of rotting meat. Since the smell is a big part of this great happening, you get quite a cadre of flies also crashing the party.
You know, that our odor party wouldn't be complete without a few of our winged friends anyway, so in order to compliment your Corpse Flower pin, of course, you'll need your gold fly pin. The art for these wonderful pins was created by B. Berish in our own studio and the fabrication for all of our enamel pin is done under our strict supervision.
Since things needed to get a little more exciting around the Huntington, they're also celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the founding of this special place. B. Berish was asked to make an enamel pin just for the occasion.
This striking pin is a faithful recreation of the Huntington's 100th Anniversary logo and is the perfect way for you to show your support of this great institution.
B. Berish has made custom pieces for many museums such as the Lower East Side Tenement Museum in New York City, The National Constitution Center in Philadelphia and the the Newark Museum, just to name a few. We have also created custom pieces for retailers, corporate and private events, as well as having a large catalog of existing designs in jewelry, enamel pins, greeting and occasion cards and marble coasters. Check out the collections on our website. We welcome questions about out capabilities and we'd love to brainstorm product ideas with you.
