Some glass just has class. This idea is the focus of the last Floral Friday of 2017. The over all care in construction, the color or clarity, and the styling details add to the beauty of specialty glass vases that go beyond supermarket vases. Today, we have three examples of how to bring these accents up a notch.
A short, squat swung vase is dark orange at the bottom and gradually fades to crystal clear at the top. To honor our very quickly approaching New Year’s Eve, I carefully arranged river stones as a visual pun for an “on the rocks” drink. The rocks are the mechanicals for the shiny decorative branches and rich, orange poppies.
Here are two clear glass candle-holders that were probably inspired by the depression glass pattern, Manhattan. The horizontal fins reflect light either when used with candles or from the outside without candles. The box and spherical shapes are equally appealing, so I used both. Similar floral materials arranged as variations unite the two candle holders as a single project. Notice that the horizontal ridges compliment the ridges of the small dresser top.
