Thick Glass …Floral Friday

The thick layer of clear ice on the driveway inspired today’s theme of vases manufactured from thick glass. Because winter ice provided the idea, pine branches were used as supporting mechanicals for each arrangement. Three very sturdy glass vessels were found, so I set upon filling them.

To provide visual and mass contrast, delicate light purple blossoms find support in the dark, heavy blue glass gift vase.

The substantial, decorated white vase has a mid-20th century style. A trio of reddish-pink lilies with the pine finishes the look.

The thick blue glob of a vase is as heavy as a rock. The contemporary style needed the bright, stellar appearance of these simple yellow flowers.

The Blue Jay of Happiness likes these lines from philosopher/poet/politician Muhammad Iqubal:
“Become dust–and they will throw thee in the air;
Become stone–and they will throw thee on glass.”
