This beautiful deep forest green flower is the perfect housewarming gift to grace a garden bed. The multiple layers of vintage and repurposed ceramic, porcelain and glass pieces were hand selected for their ability to enhance the esthetic appeal of the flower.
There are six layers to this flower. The base is a round deep forest green ceramic plate beautiful in its own right with Oak leaves imprinted on the edges. This base is topped with small white ceramic plate with gold edging and gen this is topped with a vintage ceramic reproduction plate that has early Americana scenes printed on the creamy tan background. Atop this plate is a fluted clear glass bowl. Inside this bowl is a frosted glass light globe and inside this globe is small clear heavy shot glass that takes the shape of the flowers stamen. Each individual piece adds to the beauty of the entire creation.
The flowers are planted in my garden using iron or cast aluminum and copper. I love the way that copper gets a handsome green patina and all of these pieces will lovingly get more beautiful over time.
I collect glass and ceramic pieces where ever I travel. When I am out looking I think of each item not for the function it served in its former life, but for the color, clarity, and quality in its entirety and how it might lend itself to become a part of the garden.
All pieces are then examined for their integrity and then arranged into my whimsical flowers. These are then assembled using the highest rated outdoor adhesive. After they are married in their proper position in the flower they are then put aside to cure for three days. The back of the flower has either a heavy duty round iron flange or a lighter weight cast aluminum square affixed in the same manner and allowed to cure for an additional three days. This piece has a 1/2" female hex thread that is used with the included copper male adapter and 90 degree copper elbow. The copper elbow is then slipped slipped over a 1/2" copper pipe (not included). This copper pipe can be purchased at your local hardware store (Home Depot or Lowe's). I like to use a 4' piece of pipe and sink it 10-12" into the ground, but you can grow your flowers shorter if you prefer. You may also display them on your dining room table or on a display stand, but do be aware that some of my flowers are heavy depending on the weight of the pieces used to create them.
