Large Flower Garden Stake - Blue Green

This flower is one of my favorite blues. It is also slightly translucent, which I love. The green stripes on each petal are iridescent glass that shimmers in the sun. The center is a bright yellow glass and the very center is a handmade copper center.

The flower is 5″ in diameter (cupped shape) and the entire stake stands 33″ tall.

The process

Each flower was drawn and cut by me, and fired twice — first to fuse the glass and then to shape it. After firing, I drilled each one and installed stainless steel and copper hardware to secure the flower to the stem at the center.

The stems are 1/4″ copper tubing. I fabricated the copper centers out of thin-rolled copper, added some stippling, and secured them with weatherproof clear silicone to cover the bolt head.

The stakes were designed by my engineer husband and are 3-D printed. They are secured by copper pins drilled through the stake and the stem. I also used a small amount of clear silicone to reduce any rattle/movement.

To unpack: grasp the black stake and behind the flower head and gently straighten. Forcing a tight bend in the tubing may cause it to kink. Here is a quick video illustrating how to stretch them out.

To stake them in the garden: apply pressure on the black stake part rather than the glass or copper tubing.
