Glass Flowers

Have you guys seen these? I haven't made any yet but I'm going to just as soon as I collect some glass. I think they are really pretty.

They are gorgeous! Wonder how they are put together and what the stamens are made of.

This is the closest I've come to something like that. Not nearly as beautiful or professional.

I was thinking of stealing stamens from some silk flowers and gluing them in.

On his website he says the glass pieces all come apart and are drilled with a bolt fastening all the pieces together. They're 6' tall and made with rebar.

The glass pieces are all familiar to me but I can't figure out what the stamens are and how he fixes the pieces to the stems.

He gives all that info on his site. The stamens are molten glass. I've used copper wire and beads for some stamens. Does anybody know how much he charges? I'll bet they're WAY up there and should be.

Posieh, look for the post 'glass flowers' by old crafty. The web site is posted on that post.

Stunning ! I wish I had brought more glass with me when I moved from CT to TX. I had No Idea that glass pieces would be impossible to find here. ---- Laura

I'm sorry, I didn't realize someone had already posted these. I was surfing on line and found them. My mistake!

Wow. I looked at the Mikes flowers website. They are stunning.

Some of the glass I've collected is beautiful but too textured to glue together. I may have to try drilling holes. Some of it is so pretty that it is now in my kitchen cupboards to use and my dh was just complaining about too much strange shaped stuff that doesn't stack well, lol. Maybe I'll tell him I'll get rid of it if he'll drill holes inthem for me!
