To capture the delicate detail of each flower, these pieces are subjected to numerous firings to incorporate the many hand cut fragments of glass. Unlike most flowers that fade and die, these have resilient beauty!

In her own words:
‘Inspired by my love of flowers, particularly orchids, my sculptural flower collections combine several glass fusion techniques. Emulating the delicate, ethereal translucency of flower petals, I recreate the living structure as it forms in nature, so that backlighting reveals every gossamer detail through the layers in a diffused spectral glow.’
