Making flower canes
If you have ever wondered how flowers in a design like Wild Garden are created, first a cane with five lobes is made, as shown below. Imagine a stick of rock with the design all the way through. This is then chopped into slices to reveal the flower shape. The flowers are then applied to the surface of the hot glass. Reheating the glass fuses them to the surface.
