Blue Vanda Orchid
Diameter 25cm Depth 6cm
Emulating the delicacy and ethereal translucency of the orchid flower, Laura recreates the living structure as it forms in nature. Backlighting reveals every gossamer detail through the petal layers in a diffused spectral glow. Each delicate orchid is hand cut, cold-worked and kiln-formed from wafer thin layers with hair-fine, flame-worked strands of glass meticulously laid in place to create subtle veining. The flower undergoes two to three separate firings and interstitial cold-working before the final slump. The finishes glass orchid is then finely sandblasted and sealed to recreate the natural satin soft sheen.
Dimensions: 250mm (10 inches) diameter by 60mm (2.5 inches) deep.
