Glass Globe Large With Flower

This new interpretation of a snow globe with natural material will fit in perfectly with both rustic and transitional decor. The flowers and petals are made from white shell that washed ashore on the beaches of the Philippines. The stalk is wrapped with a fast growing plant called abaca. The artist uses natural woodchips to tie in the feel of a snow globe while staying true to natural materials. Finally, the flower and its contents are enclosed in a hand-blown glass globe. Bring in this natural piece with all the intricate detail that only comes from handcrafted art.

Construction:
The glass used in this globe is hand-blown and will have both texture on the outside and bubbles within the glass itself.

The wood composite base is hand-painted to give it a distressed finish.

Capiz is an oyster shell and the primary purpose of the oyster is as a source of food. However, the by-product, the shell, can be used for decoration. Due to it being a natural material, the natural colors of the capiz come through as tans and browns underneath the paint.
