The Patricia’s Pride Lily is a beautifully showy style of lily. This type of lily has wide open smooth white glass petals which allow the sunlight to glint beautifully amongst the green foliage in your lily bed. The bright white of the petals is a delightful contrast to the surrounding foliage, and the splash of purple adds wonderful excitement.
Measuring approximately 12″ in diameter and 4″ in depth, the gorgeous fused glass replica is an everlasting bloom to enjoy all summer. In other words, once your lilies have bloomed out, you’ll still have plenty of beautiful colour in your gardens!
The Patricia’s Pride Lily can be mounted on a copper stake, secured into the soil in your garden. Because of this, 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. The lily is a perfect gift for the gardener who has everything.
Pair this lily with the miniature version; the Baby Patricia’s Pride Lily.
How it’s Made:
We create the Patricia’s Pride 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 an appropriate colour density is achieved, the petals are slumped into the curved lily shape.
Each time we fire the glass, we process it through an annealing cycle. This adds strength to 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 lets us pass a bolt through the glass to secure to the copper garden stake, or to be mounted to the wall.
Stamens for the Patricia’s Pride Lily are soldered, and we add a patina to chemically darken the tips. Finally, we clean the stamens and attach them to the lily with either a bolt for copper garden stakes, or a wood screw for wall mounting.
