Orchids have a reputation as difficult to grow because they need filtered light and high humidity. Our glass orchids are care-free. No watering. No worrying. No discarding dead plants. Orchids from The Glass Studio, LLC will always be blooming.
The sepia-toned orchid design is "sandwiched" between white background glass and a top glass "cap" of pale yellow. The luminary is accented with a third layer of colored glass sprinkles, adding yellow, cranberry, plum and sparkling adventurine green to the glass orchid design. The luminary is curved with heat to allow illumination from behind with a window, candle or other light source.
