Three Garden Stakes

Volume 29 - Issue 1

A set of three-dimensional garden stakes created using sheet glass, colored glass nuggets, and copper wire. Various geometric shapes are cut from the glass for flower petals. The nuggets are then installed in the centers of the flowers and finished with decorative soldering and wire curlicues. Flower stems made from 20-gauge copper wire are attached as a way to use them as garden stakes. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.
