The Peony, here sculpted into a dazzling crystal flower art piece, is known as the king of all flowers and zenith of nature’s beauty. It is the one that the Chinese have held in great esteem for millennia, and it was often reserved solely for those of royal descent and as a symbol of opulence and prosperity. Peony conveys blessings of fulfillment, passion and splendid harmony. The glasswork which combines vase and flower takes its viewer through an honest examination of both inner and outer beauty. Layers of pedals growing upwards form an abstract and solid pillar just as we all form a society. View the self through flowers, view the world through a vase. In the grace of the peony, we are shown the serenity in life.
