Glass Orchid Sculpture ‘Miltonia Spectibilis Sunshine’ by Laura Hart

A glass orchid sculpture made with pure passion by plant aficionado Laura Hart.

A delicate beauty, with petals the colour of peach blossom and hints of magenta and plum.

Scaled to an eye-catching 30cm in diameter, these delicate art pieces are custom-made for you in around 1 month.

Laura’s work has won great acclaim and these pieces have been described as “The best glass flowers in the world” by top
London Chandelier Maker, George Singer.

Inspired by the natural majesty of these wonderful and well-loved plants, Laura has captured their very essence in a permanent bloom that will last many lifetimes.

Artist Statement:

”Inspired by the beauty and ingenuity of this unparalleled plant species, I endeavour to recreate these incredible powers as faithfully and authentically as possible, whilst imbuing them with my own artistic interpretation. Scaled up to around 30cm diameter, every bloom has unique colour variations and nuances; homage to the subtlety of evolutionary adaptation”.

Glass Orchid Sculpture – Artist

Laura Hart Glass started experimenting with oils and canvas at the tender age of twelve. In her teenage years, she trod the boards. Later, in her 20’s and 30’s she was involved in video production and 3D animation.  In her 40’s she dabbled in heritage building renovation. She only became united with the glorious world of glass art by the time she reached her 50s. Laura, however, always had a love for glass, watching the blowers at work in Stourbridge as a child.

Her career turned to glass when she was asked to work on a glass and steel piece. This is when her obsession and passion with glass really began. Laura attended courses to learn the basics of casting and fusing, buying a kiln and setting up shop in the garage of her home. Laura loves the myriad of diversity that is always present when working with glass.

Laura’s work centres on the conservation of endangered species, flora and fauna. She recreates her specimens using glass fusion and pate de verre casting as well as kiln and flame work. Sterling silver is found in many of her pieces, giving anatomical detail. Influenced by Georgia O’Keefe, Laura has also been a lifelong collector of art nouveau and deco works. Many of her works such as this decorative glass platter are inspired by the Art Nouveau period, their geometry and precision taking on a high level of optical precision.
