More on this design

Bumblebees are deceptively clumsy insects who knock over flowers with their weight, covering the flowers with bee pollen. They operate at lower temperatures than honey bees, so they are usually the first bees seen in Spring. They are important pollinators, flying in weather too cold for honeybees and pollinate the flowers that are inaccessible to the honeybee. 

The first bumblebees of the season are large because they are known as the “queens” who nest build and forage for food. These bees don’t sting unless highly provoked. They contribute immeasurably with the pollination of wildflowers and crops. Bumblebees don't make a lot of honey, but they eat pollen and nectar- like from roses. In addition to roses, bumblebees feed on crocus, tulips, hyacinth, lupines, and foxgloves before roses are available for the season.

The flowers featured in this luminary are flowers from Rosaceae, which are single flowered roses. They comprise approximately of 3,400 species and is found around the world. These flowers vary in size and shape and are usually large and showy. The meanings of these roses vary by the color. The red rose featured in this luminary is the unmistakable expression of love. They symbolize deep emotion, love, longing, desire, admiration, and devotion.

Roses have a variety of uses. They are widely grown for their beauty, but are often used for commercial perfumery because of their fragrance. Rose perfumes are made by steaming and distilling the crushed petals of roses. These flowers are also used in food and drinks. Rosehips are made into jelly, jam, and marmalade. Tea can be brewed and contain high levels of Vitamin C. Rosewater is used in Middle Eastern Cuisine. They are also used in rose flavored candy.

Roses date back to 500 BC. Medieval Christians associated 5 petals of rose with the five wounds of Christ. Roses are also associate with the Virgin Mary. They are also used in Chinese medicine. 

This fused glass luminary is a unique, individually-crafted glass art creation, signed by the artist.  A one-of-a-kind glass botanical creation that will last forever, flowers and bumblebees that will never die.
