Head and Shoulders

Bird of Paradise Bottles

I have always been drawn to cacti and succulents, and since moving to Southern California I have fallen in love with the Bird of Paradise flower.  Resembling a bird in flight, the plant was given the name Bird of Paradise.  In my mind however, I have personified them.  And in this design I have created a form giving the flower a head and shoulders.  I love the subtle transitions in the flowers' colors and strived to showcase that.  Both bottles have removable stoppers- their delicate features carefully hot sculpted.  The green bottle with stopper in is 17" tall and 8" wide.  The black bottle with stopper in is 19" tall and 6.5" wide.  They are an incredible statement piece paired together.
