Originally from upstate New York, Max has called the Bay Area of the US home for almost 35 years. Max received his degree in Environmental Science from UC Berkeley but was compelled by more creative pursuits, eventually finding floral design the perfect medium, starting Max Gill Design in 2005He has done the flowers at Chez Panisse for over a decade and offers full floral services for weddings, special events and private clients such as Alice Waters, Michael Pollan, and Lauren McIntosh. Informed by natural process, Max’s work is distinguished by his reliance on speciality blooms and botanical rarities gleaned from local growers, his own formidable cut flower garden in North Berkeley, and a long list of bay area nurseries.“My work is always botanically inspired. What I find most compelling in nature is when plants are struggling to find their place in the environment. As they fight to overcome the challenges of space and light, often surprising us with their juxtaposition, they create beauty through adaptation.”Max’s episode‘with a tube top and roller blades’What a wonderfully open and light hearted chat we had with Max, we cover a wide range of topics, from who would play him a movie (who do you think …?); finding a like-minded community and flowers that are too floral. Max shares with us his inspirations, how he creates mini dramas within a design and elaborates further on the beautiful quote above.
