Twenty four hours—that is how long the hibiscus lives. The elegance of this flower lies not just within its very gentle spirit, but in its fleeting lifespan. The arch of this crystal art piece, like the rise and fall of the sun, represents that ephemeral existence. The flower blossom itself—trumpet-shaped and heralding in the day—is crafted with powdered crystal and fired separately with special techniques. It is subsequently joined—by refiring—with the remaining glass sculpture. The resulting artwork captures the essence of an impermanent existence. Because, with infallible grace, the hibiscus flower demonstrates the beauty of living in the present. And through that state of mind it achieves eternity.
A crystal glass flower sculpture of the Hibiscus flower represents or symbolizes eternity, resilience, and a gentle spirit.
