Bamboo Garden II Salad Plate
Three stalks of bamboo embossed into an intermediate sized glass plate.
The rapid growth of bamboo is predictable, but the flowering cycle is still an infrequent mystery. One species has been documented to have a 130 year interval between setting blooms. When the plant does produce flowers and seeds it is typically in mass and may be over a several year period. It is said that bamboo has it's own season; it will celebrate and reproduce when it's ready - not before. This hardy plant might just be a great symbol for inspired independence.
The repurposed glass was hand-trimmed to 8.0" x 8.0" prior to firing. From window to artwork takes 12 to 24 hours of handwork and kiln time.
PLEASE NOTE: Each artwork creation will be unique - not an exact duplication of the image posted since they are crafted by hand in window glass using similar sized bamboo art. What will be the same is the level of beauty & the design, the attention to detail and the pleasure of how our glass feels in your hands. Please feel free to email us to ask for a photo or two of the plates we have in stock - we will get back to you as soon as possible.
SALAD PLATE: Ideally sized for a distinctive salad or luncheon plate, this handcrafted artwork is perfect for sitting on a tabletop as a subtle and tasteful nod to your style. Pair it with a linen napkin or a stoneware charger or cuttings from your garden and let the light make magic in the embossed design. The plates are carefully packed in a sturdy, earth-friendly gift box before shipping.
