Hydrangea Bowl by David Flower. In subtle tones of green, blue and yellow with a soft stylised floral pattern this large open bowl perfectly captures the blousy, multi layered blooms of a hydrangea in its full glory.
David Flower cut his teeth in the workshop of Peter Layton’s London Glassblowing before moving to Sunderland where, as artist in residence, he made sculpture by commission worldwide. Now his work focuses on using his material to its best advantage, employing classical forms and gently sculpted shapes in the hope of conveying the simple love of his craft.
David says “I make my patterns like a painter. Starting with a base colour or wash and layering on different colours of glass powders and chips in such a manner as to create the design that I am after. In this manner I try to get the “feeling” of the thing I am attempting to represent rather than a carbon copy. I guess you could say I paint with hot glass.”
