In continuing with my obsession about glass sculptures, I discovered a fun little project using bottles and smaller bowls. Put them on a garden stake, and they make flowery looking sculpture type things! And no, they aren’t new, but they’re new to me.
I’ve found that I like making them a lot, and have quite a few more than I’ve painted that I’ll be posting here eventually, but in the meantime here’s some of the glass flowers I stuck in the ground yesterday.
First, I found these awesome cobalt bottles. They really make the flowers. But you could also use bud vases or any kind of bottles.
I just personally love cobalt anything. I combined this first batch with some small bowls I had found and glass beads.
Projects like this are in my book, Glass Sculptures: How to Make Beautiful Sculptures for the Garden Using Vases, Bowls, and Other Glass Pieces.
This are new to me too, Cherie. Your garden looks so lush. Where do you find the time?!
It helps me relax, so it’s what I do at the end of the day to recharge. As for my garden, it’s mostly ground cover! LOL I can’t grow a thing.

I am having a “why didn’t I think of that???” moment!
ha! Probably because you’re already thinking of a million other creative things that no one else is!
