    Default Inspiration.

    Spring is here, and we havenít been caught in a tsunami, an earth quake, or a nuclear disaster .
    The cactus is for inspiration. How about a pendant, or some earrings like this? Happy Easter break, Dennis.

    beautiful cactus flower Dennis, I'm doing a bit of glass fusing, which probably isn't the way you expected viewers to go but your flower would be perfect for what i have in mind. Well, that's if my prototype in the kiln turns out ok.
    I was thinking 'daisy' until i saw your post, so thank you for the inspiration.
    I'll be back !

    Lovely Dennis, the flowers in some sort of cluster springs (no pun intended, sorry) to my minds eye....might we see some creative results from you by the end of the weekend??

    It's a world tie pin for me over the Bank Holiday, some fine piercing of continents if what I have in mind works!!

    Happy Easter everyone!

    My garden is so full of flowers right now and they are always a source of inspiration. I made this in the last few days, it is a periwinkle with a little freshwater pearl in the centre. However I did not give much thought to how it would be used once made and indeed the back makes it rather awkward as a pendant as it does not hang correctly in as much as it wants to be pointing down. Still I will at some point find a use for it.

    Well Dennis, I have never made a cactus flower, there's food for thought!

    I thought you might like to see one of my more elaborate uses of flowers, this is the central 16 inch diameter bowl which was part of a set with six other 8 inch diameter bowls.
