I have been making sculpture glass flowers and leaves for eight years. I prefer to use Bullseye Glass because it is easier to sculpt on the mandrel and the colors are muted lending to more natural flowers. The flowers are hand sculpted, kiln annealed and then placed in my Etsy Store for sale.
Each open flower begins with a glass bale for stringing and because they are made on the mandrel the bail is strong. The buds are made in line which means the hole goes through the flower bud and the leaves have a bale on the top.
The flowers on this page represent different periods of my flowers as well as the color palettes some of which are still available and some which the manufacturers have discontinued.

When you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it's your world for the moment. I want to give that world to someone else. Most people in the city rush around so, they have no time to look at a flower. I want them to see it whether they want to or not. - Georgia O'Keeffe
