The formal feeling colours of the Black Out Lily stand proudly in your lily gardens.
- Deep red colour with single striation
- Asiatic lily style
- Suitable for outdoor garden art or indoor wall decor
- 11″ diameter, 5″ depth
- Two options for mounting hardware
The deep carmine red Black Out Lily mimics one of the darkest red Asiatic lilies. This type of lily has smooth curved petals. As such, the sunlight catches the stunning curves and sparkles amongst the encompassing foliage of your garden. The deep tones of the petals are a perfect contrast to the shades of green.
Measuring approximately 11″ in diameter and 5″ in depth, the gorgeous fused glass replica is an everlasting bloom to enjoy all summer. In other words, once your live lilies have bloomed out, you’ll still have plenty of beautiful colour to enjoy in your gardens!
The Black Out Lily has two options for mounting hardware. It can be mounted on a copper stake to secure into the soil in your garden. As a result, your fused glass garden art lily blends right in with the live blooms. Alternatively, you can mount the flower as wall decor either on a fence, or even in your home on the wall. A fused glass lily is a perfect gift for the gardener who has everything.
Make sure to see the smaller twin of this lily; the petite Baby Black Out Lily.
How it’s Made:
We create the Black Out Lily using multiple steps. First, we cut the petals from sheet glass, grinding each piece to the right size and shape. Next, we place the petals in the kiln and fuse to the proper thickness. Once the petals cool, we add coloured glass powders and send the glass back into the kiln. After the desired colour density is achieved, the petals are slumped into the curved lily shape.
Each time we fire the glass, it is processed through an annealing cycle. This strengthens the glass by releasing internal stresses within the glass. In other words, your glass lily is more durable than regular glass and can be enjoyed for many years.
Once the glass is slumped and cooled, we drill the central hole in the lily. This allows the bolt to pass through the glass to secure to the copper garden stake, or to be mounted to the wall.
Stamens for the Black Out Lily are soldered, and we add a patina to darken the tips. Finally, we clean the stamens and attach them to the lily either using a bolt for copper garden stakes, or a wood screw for wall mounting.
