Glass flowers anyone?
« on: December 18, 2012, 09:14:18 AM »
An item currently on offers 21 glass tulips in a cloud glass bowl. Aside from the price, it looks quite attractive. Who makes such things?

My favourite glass flower maker is Colin Heaney of Byron Bay, NSW. This bunch of heavyweights has stems 35-45cm long and some of the flowers are up to 14cm across. Some are signed and dated 1993. The vase is the same vintage and made by Chuck Simpson, probably at his Vesta Hot Glass studio in Eumundi, Queensland.

I have flowers made by several New Zealand glass artists, as well as quite a lot of glass Chuck Simpson made while he was in New Zealand. These flowers were made by Ann Robinson about 1988; they were a 'bread and butter' line she made, at the time she was moving from blowing to casting.
