The Trogon Lily is designed based on a cheerful Asiatic lily of the same name. This variety of lily has smooth curved glass petals which catch the sunlight and sparkle amongst the green leaves in your gardens. The sweetly exotic tones in this lily will have you wishing for a glass of fresh pink lemonade.
Measuring approximately 8″ in diameter and 3″ 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 can still have plenty of beautiful colour in your gardens!
The Trogon Lily is exquisite when mounted on a copper stake, secured in the soil in your garden. Displayed like 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.

How it’s Made:
We create the fused glass Trogon Lily using many 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 and dots have been added, the petals are then 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 Trogon Lily are soldered, and we add a patina to 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.
