Description Orchis Exotica Phalaenopsis Violet is a unique glass & neon sculptural wall mounted orchid by the British artist Laura Hart.

The Orchis Exotica are created from 6 components/petals ( each hand made and fused & slumped glass) which fit in to a central 3D printed cradle, all designed by the artist, which not only holds the glass pieces in place but also supports the neon element. To capture the delicate detail of each flower, these pieces are subjected to numerous firings to incorporate the many hand cut fragments of glass. Unlike most flowers that fade and die, these have resilient beauty! These are mounted on a 60cm diameter, museum-quality lacquered backboard, which also houses and hides the electrics for the neon and also has the brackets needed for wall hanging.

Laura Hart's Glass Studio is situated in rural Suffolk where she creates unique, bespoke and limited edition art and architectural glass works. As both artist and designer, Hart unites twenty-first Century 3D design applications with age-old traditional glass-making techniques. Her delicate and highly detailed flowers follow a lifelong passion for flora and the rural landscape with a desire to capture it’s natural elegance.

In her own words:

‘Inspired by my love of flowers, particularly orchids, my sculptural flower collections combine several glass fusion techniques. Emulating the delicate, ethereal translucency of flower petals, I recreate the living structure as it forms in nature, so that backlighting reveals every gossamer detail through the layers in a diffused spectral glow.’
