Light Green Prickly Pear with Double Pink Buds
Perhaps you have memories of the prickly pear from your grandparents' farm, or one in your neighbour's front yard. Emma started noticing how prolific this plant is after a visit to her maternal grandparents' birthplace in Malta., where prickly pear cacti line the landscape.
Interpreting this cactus into blown glass leads to limitless combinations of colour and form, with an exciting 'hot-joining' technique where the artwork transforms before one's eyes. Emma is admittedly a tragic green thumb, but 'growning' glass plants is a way to create animated life... that doesn't require any watering!
