The Forget Me Nots are beginning to fade in the Summer Heat, but the garden has been awash with the blue blossoms of these delicate little flowers as they turn their heads to the sun. I really enjoyed making this tiny little bowl using flameworked, fused and painted elements. The forget me nots will be with us until September, but, as Winter comes, this little piece of glass will make sure you remember their beauty and look forward to them arriving with us next year.
This lovely little bowl is made using a selection of handpulled and flameworked glass, layered with multicoloured tints glass giving it a wonderful lifelike feel. Using a mix of opaque and transparent glass handformed in the flame, this is a great little piece that will look lovely wherever it is placed.
Signed and dated, part of my Isolation - Through the Garden Window series, this piece marks a time in our life when many of us have been forced to reflect and regroup and serves as a reminder to us all to appreciate the beauty of Mother Nature.
Until Lockdown is fully lifted and the pressure on the NHS has been eased, I will be donating 20% of sales from this collection to the #NHSHeroes Appeal. - https://www.justgiving.com/campaign/WSHTHospitalHeroes. #LoveYourHospital is the official charity for West Sussex Hospitals and is supporting the health and wellbeing of the tremendous staff at St Richard's, Worthing and Southlands Hospitals who have looked after me and my family on many occasions over the years.
Dimensions: approx 10 cm Diameter, 2 cm deep.
