From childhood, Perri has had great respect for horticulture, beginning with exposure to the natural beauty of western Tennessee. He spent many summers at his great aunt's home near Memphis (Perri's hometown), surrounded by fruit trees with great blossoms, roses, and gardenias. Wild grape vines even covered the front porch. Perri has fond childhood memories of that place that shaped his fascination with flora. He remembers his great aunt going out to the garden the morning after a late spring, night-long rain spell. She filled his favorite Flintstone jelly glass with fresh rose water, poured from the great blossoms of cabbage roses that had held the water all night. Then she came to his bedside, waking him by lightly sprinkling drops of water on his forehead. Perri feels Blessed by such memories; they are the spark that created GULCHI & GULCHI.
At his new studio in the heart of Nashville, Perri works well into the night to create his brilliant cultivated treasures. GULCHI & GULCHI… A sure place for healing, forgiveness, and dreams.
