Floral Art Glass Design

I wanted to create a design where plant material predominate over all the other components of the design with glass, not only as my focal point, but also a vital part of the design.

Floral Art Glass Design Detail

The glass pane connects the twig weave at the top with the small twig ends in the bottom. Two passion fruit stems point into the design to focus on the glass connection.
