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.
A crystal glass sculpture representing beauty and resilience, strength and determination.
