The Camellia has a reputation of withstanding bitter winters, yet… in the most elegant fashion. The base of the glass sculpture was crafted to have a rough texture, contrasting sharply with the crystal flower, which uses colorful, powdered crystal glass. The two pieces are made separately, fired in the kiln at different temperatures, before being expertly joined together in the same kiln. The concluding impression one is left with is the beautifully resilient spirit of the camellia flower. An alternative interpretation speaks to the nature of growing—that is to say, only after surviving the harshness of winter can one blossom in the spring.
Fine details and contrast demonstrate the artist’s careful work and skillful hand. Always blooming. Imbued and infused with love. Illuminate space with the light, elegant, ephemeral crystal glass forged to mimic the natural beauty of the miraculous camellia flower. A crystal flower bloom infinitely radiates abundance and beauty.
The camellia flower denotes love, robustness, devotion, and hardy spirit in the face of adversity and the changing tides and seasons. A delicate, pale yellow hue, this rounded sculpture captures the essence of the natural beauty, grace, and dignity of the beloved and cherished camellia flower, native to China and other areas throughout southern and eastern Asia.
A crystal glass sculpture representing beauty and resilience, strength and determination.
