I love indoor plants and succulents, I’ve always grown up having gardens and loving having my hands in the soil. I really enjoy making these pieces as it allows my imagination to run wild.
I’m very obsessed with flowers and nature if you can’t already tell, this piece has been made with soda lime soft glass which is commonly used in beads. It is very soft to work with which means you need to be very careful on how you construct the piece otherwise you risk exploding or melting your creation. (I assure you I have done my fair share of doing that in the learning process). I adore making these pieces as it allows me to mix different colours of compatible glass rods and make up my own colours which make the piece even more unique. I have planted the cactus into a painted terracotta flower pot with bonsai pebbles which are glued into place so they don’t fall out of the pot and so the cactus does not move.
Displayed in a terracotta pot 5.5 cm in width & length and and 5 cm in height, overall piece stands 7.5 cm in height. It weighs approximately 100 grams so please disregard the weight in the listing below that is purely for shipping purposes.
This piece will come shipped to you carefully packaged in a box with hobby fill to reduce movement through the postal service.
Care instructions: Whilst each piece goes through an annealing process to strengthen the glass, do take care not to drop them. Cleaning dust from your glass is easiest by using a fluffy soft brush and very carefully dusting your piece. Please use extra care when dusting the flowers as these are the most delicate.
