We are all really looking forward to this Spring and Summer and all the bright colorful flowers that signal this change of seasons! Flowers are a particularly good subject for glass art! You can do something complicated and realistic or something abstract and loose. Flowers make everyone feel good (plus there are no allergies with glass flowers and they never wilt!) Almost any glass technique will produce attractive flowers and they are also a perfect theme for using up all sorts of scrap! Flowers come in so many sizes and shapes and colors…. it is something you can really have fun with and also use as an easy subject when experimenting with some new techniques. If just can’t think of what to do next…. a flower is a great place to start! Plus, pieces containing flowers are wonderfully appropriate for so many holidays or special occasions like Mother’s Day coming up in May or for those beautiful June brides!
Here are some lovely examples of flowers created by a number of our members using a variety of glass techniques.
Thank you so much to everyone who participated in our glass flower theme. Our theme for the next newsletter will be nature! Please submit 1-3 images with a brief description of your process. Please send JPG’s if at all possible to Greta Schneider by April 12th.
