Artist Creates Gigantic Glass Flowers To Draw Our Attention To Their Beauty And Detail
Seattle-based modern glass master Jason Gamrath creates gorgeous large-scale glass flowers, bringing the details of their micro world to our macro scale. The artist mainly focuses on orchids and carnivorous plants, which shine with vivid colours and dazzle us with their remarkably realistic features and details.
“The purpose of creating this series on a macro scale is to bring to light the beauty that exists within the micro scale of nature,” writes Gamrath in his artist statement. “Through the rigors of day-to-day life in an urban setting, I find it all too easy to overlook the natural beauty that has ultimately birthed us as a species. When I scale life forms up to be larger than a person, they can be observed with this perspective from across a room due to the overwhelming physical presence they command.”
Take a look at Gamrath’s collection of gigantic glass flowers, which can turn your perception of your surroundings upside down.

Sure would be nice to see these shiny and smooth glass masterpieces coming out of rough textured coquina rock or huge pieces of gnarly driftwood. It’s on my bucket list to work with this talented artist. Sending my wish out into the universe.
c’est vraiment génial !
This is absolutely incredible! Love the attention to detail and the colors!
