Flowers That Have Wilted,

and past their best,

 are usually thrown away,

 but these, 

 they will keep forever,

 as they are made of glass, 

 these flowers are the work of Italian glass artist Lilla Tabasso, who captures the vitality of flowers in her delicate and precise botanical sculptures, 

 She often includes the word “Vanitas” in the titles of her sculptures that show decaying blossoms, a reference to the 17th-century Dutch still life painting genre that represents transience and death through symbolic objects, Tabasso’s scientifically accurate artwork is rooted in her background as a biologist,

in addition to her vase-based pieces, Tabasso also crafts jewelry and small installations, and has created work for Design Miami Basel and Vogue Italia, She is represented by Caterina Tognon gallery in Venice, Italy. You can see more of her work on Instagram, what stunning work in glass.
