Before beginning each project, I sit down with my client and chat through what exactly they are looking for, elements and stones they would like to include, and any specifics they would like for their piece.
Hey, My name is Bailey Graham, but I often go by Blue. I create sculptures and woodland crowns-often made of real antlers- for rustic weddings and events.
How did you come up with the ideas for your sculptures?
As a sculpture artist, I found myself experimenting quite often! At one point I was brainstorming my Halloween costume and decided to make a woodland crown… and BOOM! After uploading a photo of my first crown to my Instagram and tiktok, a few of my videos went viral and I was getting multiple DM’s a day about where people could purchase them! At that point I knew it was something I enjoyed making, as well as something other people would like, and I began making more, and uploading them to my little business I created called Sun and Cedar. I now commonly make these crowns and sculptures for woodland, witch and rustic weddings!
What does your work entail?
Before beginning each project, I sit down with my client and chat through what exactly they are looking for, elements and stones they would like to include, and any specifics they would like for their piece. My work entails a lot of sit down, sculpting time, but I also spend a lot of time outdoors collecting earth elements for my pieces, and working with mixed media for my new designs.
What is your greatest achievement so far
My greatest achievement so far is working with people that inspire me! I can’t name who yet- It’s still embargo- BUT, I am working with a very exciting artist to create a perfect crown for their project, who I used as inspiration while beginning my sculpting career! As well as that, each little message I receive about my crowns has it’s own feeling of achievement, and I am very happy to have found what I love to do.
Where can our readers find you online?
Readers can find me on my various social platforms, as I am still currently building my official website. I have a Tiktok (and Youtube) where you can watch the video process of making my pieces, as well as an Instagram account featuring my work.
Any advice for someone considering to have a wedding business/service?
I would recommend reaching out to those with experience before beginning. I found a lot of solid advice in my friends who were wedding photographers, and even though we offer different services, it is good to ask around and get a feel of what is needed at a wedding in order to optimize your service.
