Flower Power!

Lately, I’ve been making flowers. I purchased 3 used flower presses, but while I was waiting for them to arrive, I started making these lovelies:

I’m having so much fun free handing it, that even though my presses have arrived, I haven’t been using them. I tried 2 of the presses, but the free hand flowers are way more fun to make.

I’ve never really liked flowers much (not a girly girl), but I absolutely adore these! They’re so pretty! They make perfect little desktop bouquets!

These little bouquets are available for purchasing in my shop, with your choice of a clear, blue or tall vase. Or you can get just the flowers with no vase, single or bundles of 3.

I’ll also be adding more items to the shop this week, including angel wings and hearts, so keep an eye out. (Shameless plug 😉 )

  1. Beautiful! Are these soft or hard glass? I’d be interested to know, if they’re hard glass, which colours you used? I can’t seem to find many vibrant boro colours here in the UK…

  2. Sorry! Just saw this comment! These are soft glass, however, Origin makes some really nice boro colors (Borosticks). I’m not sure where you can get them in the UK, but they’re carried by several vendors in the US. Mountain Glass Arts is one of my favorites and they put them on sale every couple of months (30% off).

  3. Shawnette,
    This is Houston Pitts who is a long time hobby glass worker. Hope you are doing well. You have answered questions for me in years passed. Are you still working at Disney? My daughter works at Disney and is an industrial engineer. She works in some administrative position but I am not sure where.

    Anyway, I have a question about what is the best versatile glass working torch? I work with boro glass and do some novelty blowing like Christmas ornaments and am now using a 2 year old Bethlehem Brava torch and I am not liking it that well. It seems at times that it is not HOT enough. I know you keep up with what is newer and what is best.

    I would appreciate any information that you could provide about torches that would be useful. I am retired and don’t mind paying a good price for a good versatile boro torch.
    I hope to hear from you soon and do highly respect your advice and recommendations.

    Take care,
    Houston
