pot & box founder lisa waud has been enthusiastically steering the horticultural goings-on of pot & box since founding the business nine years ago. she’s been arranging flowers in the soil & in the vase for over 15 years—from the volcanic slopes of hawaii, the clay garden beds of the pacific northwest, & across the great [lakes] state of michigan.

lisa lives in detroit, and when she’s not playing with flowers, you can find her scheming up field trips with her giant dog zero or planning explorations in other inspirational cities.


in lisa’s words: i love to work with flowers blooming now and nearby, celebrating the richest hues, most fragrant blooms, the abundance of seasonality. i thrive on the uncommon and unexpected, applauding a determined weed growing out of a brick wall, the unusual variegation pattern on a peony’s petal, a tattooed bride’s arms cradling a delicate bouquet. i excel when tasked with realizing the visions of my clients, arranging stems to suit the celebration, bringing event decor ideas to life,  striving for the breathtaking gasp of elation.

lisa is also the creator of flower house
