In December Droopy posted some beautiful orchid pics. I just had to have them in glass. I made a pattern from the photo and got hubby on board for this. I orignally wanted pink but this yellow glass kept calling my name.
I needed something heavy to hold these glass pieces so I made a hypertufa vase in a cheap glass vase. The glass is then busted and holes are drilled in the top. Then I glassed it in blue and hubby grouted it. I made the leaves from sheet copper and soldered them to wires.
Not too bad.
We are super busy this spring so I am keeping up with the forum as best I can. I'm mostly just reading the posts and looking at all the beautiful pics. I'm hot and heavy working on a mosaic sink for My yard.
