The blue lotus is sometimes thought to mean rebirth or reinvention. This piece shows that full enlightenment can be achieved from just the smallest jewel of an idea. I thought that using the multihued blue and green glass gave depth to the piece. I used the Tiffany method, using copper tape to cover the edges of each piece of glass, then a bead of solder to connect them. I then used a patina which turns the lines copper-colored. This beautiful stained glass piece will bloom wherever you plant it!
