The lotus starts out buried in the mud, and grows up and out into a beautiful creation, while distributing its seeds at the same time. The heart, of course, is love. With this piece I want to show that love starts from with in you, and can burst forth no matter the beginnings or environment. You feel love, and you return love. The jewel at the center is, of course, the Karma you receive! I used a ruby red waterglass for the heart and purple waterglass for the lotus. The clear gluechip glass is reminicent of ice flowers that form of ice on a window.
