22 x 22 x 1cmPainted kiln formed glass
Seeing this plant, Honesty, takes me back to my childhood in an instant. Honesty is an annual flower native to the Balkans and South west Africa which is left with a pale white translucent disc holding its seeds after flowering. It represents honesty and sincerity and further with the flat round pods resembling coins symbolises wealth. It grows in my garden from seeds from Montsalvat and is from a series of Honesty glass works, including earrings and artworks which I have made during the last year or so.
