Wow, these are so beautiful. They must just sparkle all the time. Imagine having a garden full of these beauties. I bet they are a bit pricey though...sigh. My budget is busted.

Very cool objects, are they maid from existing glass or are they individually blown?

Kim Carney said...

Yes, I think he makes them all from recycled plates, vases, etc ... he is really good at this sort of thing!

How many florists' vases must he be saving from the landfill (or from that creepy cabinet in every office I've ever worked)!

My sister and I bought two of these beautiful flowers for our mother on Mother's Day. They were a big hit. Headed to Vashon Island on Father's Day to maybe pick up a couple more ;)
