The Hot Mess x Asrai Garden series is a collaborative project between local artist Tanner Bowman and Asrai Garden founder Elizabeth Cronin. With inspiration from HBO Max's Full Bloom, Tanner has created vessels hybridizing his campy, crafty, queer and nostalgic perspective with Asrai Garden's unique space aesthetic.

"My work’s central purpose is to bring a queer sense of joy and irreverence into both my life and other peoples homes. Additionally, all of my objects materially revolves around utilizing and aggrandizing crafting supplies that I have been drawn to since my childhood. In a way, I see my work as an embodiment of nourishing my inner child as a queer adult - to create unconditionally safe and infinitely weird vibes through the objects we surround ourselves with and survive by... I think that creating a queer, unapologetic, and eccentric energy is very valuable." -Tanner Bowman
