Are you looking for something different this year for your Valentine? Check out Doug Brown’s glass pieces at Colquhoun Glass Works. Brown conducts classes each weekend and also has examples of his work for sale.
In addition to lots of pumpkins, he creates interesting fruits and veggies, orchids and attractive vessels in a variety of styles.
Here are some unique pumpkins: Glass pumpkins with dark blue and green with some transparent color swirled in. Hand made so some variations will occur. Average size is determined by height and width.
The Helena Glass Orchid is sculpted and textured to produce this orchid that is 5″x5″x5″ of glass on a 18″ copper stem. It is potted in 6″x6″ black ceramic pot.
Glass Fruit and Vegetables are a delightful addition to any table setting.
