More Art Glass …Floral Friday

There have been three attractive art glass vases parked near my desk waiting for inspiration to flash. That finally happened earlier this week when the idea to use vase filler materials came to mind.

The emerald green Italian Empoli footed vase is eye candy when it is empty in front of a window during the daytime. However, its shape suggests that it should contain something interesting. Here I poured in some lakeside beach sand and then some small river stones. Everything was topped with bright yellow blooms.

That “Mundane Mystery” Polish glass piece I shared on this blog a couple of weeks ago has been put to use as a vase. The filler is a measure of Hawaiian volcanic pumice sand. Greenery and a cheerful Gerbera daisy are the featured attractions. A few potpourri seeds have been used for added interest.

A light green Fenton swung bowl vase contains thin slices of balsa wood and potpourri filler. The bright pinkish red flowers make a bold, crowning statement.

The Blue Jay of Happiness contemplates an anonymous query. “Your body is a temple but how long can you live in the same house before you redecorate?”
