was just browsing Pinterest and found these gorgeous recycled glass flowers. Flowers would be easy.......mounting them on rods like he does will be tricky! But aren't they beautiful!!!!!

About a year ago, I thought of making a simple
one of these, with a fancy glass saucer or bowl,
and a open ended glass light shade. I even bought
some plastic and glass 'stirrers' for the stamen.
But they sit on the shelf!
His are beautiful and very fancy.
To find the site, copy and paste again, and then
go to the search box, and enter glass flowers.
It should take you to a page then.
I am computer illiterate, so this is how I got there.

THANKS nonacook......I've been trying to figure out another way to get folks to the site because they are not plate flowers, though I guess similar. These flowers are REALLY pretty!

They're absolutely stunning!! I attach a spoon or fork to the back of mine. I keep trying to think of a better way. His look so extremely professional.

Those are gorgeous. I have some small light covers that are shaped like those and I was thinking they would look good as flowers and could not figure out how to make them.

Thanks for the link.

RE: glass flowers

Thanks, Kim. I'm addicted. You should see my workroom. I go into a thrift shop or yard sale to buy one or two pieces to finish a piece that I'm working on, then leave with a whole big bag full.

I love these!!! His website is "under construction"...I'll be checking back with him off and on to see when it's back up and running. Thanks for sharing!

RE: glass flowers

Wow! Those are gorgeous! I made one "nodding" flower, but with a 45 degree pipe fitting. I just wasn't happy with the pipe and didn't make any more. His looks like a spike welded to the metal bar, that somehow sticks into the flower. Very elegant and delicate result, however he did it.
