The lotus flower has roots in mud and brilliant petals opening up toward the heavens. It is also culturally significant with roots deep in history. For all that this flower represents, it is one of the most studied and sculpted subjects of LIULI studio art. The flower prevails over the month of June, in which it blooms. This glass art rendition of the classic lotus comes from a collection of twelve flower glassworks—each representing its respective month of the year.
