An adorable mini honey pot with sweet honey dripping down the sides. Hand-crafted lampwork glass on a clear with bubbles acrylic rods. A bit of fun for any garden, plant pot or even in your utensil pot in the kitchen. Would make a great gift for any garden or plant enthusiast! Perfect for decorating your garden or plant pots, for outdoors or in. Great to pair with my Bee Plant Pot friend (as show in photos).
My lampwork artisan glass items are handmade by myself, Darrelle in my cosy little studio in South Devon, UK. Each one is made individually and shaped by hand so each one will come out slightly different.
Approximate Size: 2.5-3cm high by 2-2.5cm across. Comes on a 16cm long clear with bubbles acrylic rod. Quantity: 1 Honey Pot plant stake
How it's made: The glass is melted until molten using a 1700° flame from a dual fuel torch. When the glass is hot and melted it acts like honey, the hotter it is the more it moves and drips. So, when the glass is acting like set honey, I can start wrapping it around stainless-steel rod and then its formed using both gravity and tools. Once it is complete it’s put into a kiln for several hours to bake then cooled down slowly, this is how the glass is hardened to make it durable. When the glass is cooled, it's taken off the stainless-steel rod and cleaned. Using strong glue, the acrylic plastic rod is attached.
