Starta - yellow patchwork flower - sunflower stake (lead-free)
A double-layer sunflower flower stake with a twist! A surprising teal-mottled glass was used to craft the leaves, providing a beautiful spin on this classic. Assembled with a special sparkly kiln-formed glass centre with little balls of dichroic glass adding texture to this piece.

ABOUT THIS COLLECTION:
This collection was crafted using tiny pieces of scrap glass to represent that we are all made up of tiny random pieces. Some of us feel more scattered than others and need more help putting ourselves together. It's okay to need help. This is why it's so important to make mental health care accessible to all, not just the rich or those in need of urgent care. In my province, the recommended rate for therapy is $220 per 50 minute appointment. That's not accessible. Thank you for your support of this collection, with 20% going to mental health charities.
HOW IT'S MADE:
Crafted using the traditional copper foil (Tiffany) stained glass technique where pieces of glass are broken, ground, covered with copper foil tape and soldered together. Buffed for maximum happy.
CARE FOR YOUR PLANT STAKE:
- I don't recommend exposing your glass items to weather. Everything is worn by weather, and this very fancy piece of glass is no exception.
- Wires may shift and can be gently bent back into shape as desired.
- Your stained glass item is crafted with lead-free solder - but may still contain traces - no licking. The glass is still breakable, so take care.
- Need a polish? Use a microfibre cloth to buff solder lines and remove fingerprints.
Please reach out with any questions! Thank you :)
