Inspired by traditional floral wreaths, I have made my own versions in stained glass. Most of the blossoms are reminiscent of particular flowers, while not fixating on exact details, more the general feel that flowers present from afar.
This wreath is made with red blooms in a loose, ruffled style. While making this wreath I thought about great sprays of marigolds, chrysanthemums and poppies. I wanted a more loose, organic feeling to the display, which is why the stems project up, sideways and down. The red glass is simultaneously bright in sunlight, and deep and rich in shadow.
There are 8 individual stems in this wreath. Each copper stem is connected in only 1 or 2 places, so they can be delicately adjusted to create different angles for the flowers.
I intend these wreaths to be hung inside on a wall or in a window, but they could be hung on a front door, as long as it is not completely open to the elements.
Each wreath has a copper loop at the top for hanging.
