I love garden art I have old statues, farm equipment and other interesting pieces throughout my ranch gardens. I would love to have one of Barbara's beautiful blown glass garden art works in my garden here!

What a wonderful prize! I haven't used glass in the garden yet but love Barbs glass art. My children loved the Christmas ornament they received last year. It was stunning.

I can't say that I've used glass in my garden, yet. Looking forward to learning something new tomorrow night!!

Jennifer Capestany said...

I've used pretty glass watering spikes (not very good for watering, but looked nice), and other kinds of garden art. Looking forward to tonight's chat! @texomagardening

traylas said...

I haven't used glass in my garden- unless you count the old bottles that surface in the yard! :) lookin forward to learning more.

These glass sculptures would look perfect in a So Cal Canyon garden amidst my natives and herbs.. I do have some clay & ceramic sculptures that I made, as well as stone statues. I love mixing art with plants.

My only garden stuff right now that isn't seeds are flags, and gosh they are so boring. I would love to have something that sparkles in the sunlight and draws attention away from the weeds...lol. Dollarseed

We have some gazing balls and a funky solar powered multi-colored ball, and a hand blown glass hummingbird feeder. There's always room for more yard art. What a wonderful giveaway! Good luck to all, and thanks, Barbara!

Wow! Those are beautiful works of art! I've have used statues in my garden but nothing as interesting Barbara's glass designs. I have a great spot in my rose garden that would be really dressed up with a glass sculpture. Very nice! Chris @Coronatools

Sadie said...

I like to use some sculptures and big rocks in my flowerbeds

A few years ago I made stained glass stepping stones. I gave some away for gifts but still hav my favorite four designs. I. Don't step on them. After all that work they are garden art.

The Farming Wife said...

Now that we have a new home, I spent last garden season putting IN the beds. Now, this year I am going to decorate. So, not yet but am going to be using glass. These are lovely!

Would love to see glass in my garden! Barbara does beautiful work and is truly a great artist,

Diana Wind, RD said...

We have a cobalt glass bird bath and beautiful glass gazing globes. I made us a few stained glass garden pieces in concrete. Your creative glass work is terrific! I especially like your vase work and fountain glass pieces. Would you ship to NJ?

Benjamin Vogt said...

I use sculpture from local artists. But no too much--it's like pepper.

Haven't used glass in the garden, but am game to try it out!

I have sculpture but not a lot of glass - would love to incorporate glass into the garden to add bits of whimsy, sparkle & color!

Xan said...

I've got a little "puddle" of glass beads nestled along my pond--blue beds in the light green creeping jenny, a very pretty effect.

kmdubow said...

This would be my first piece of garden art! I love it!

Dee/reddirtramblings said...

I love glass in the garden, and I've used a few pieces. I have a totem and glass flowers. I want to make some. I'd love to buy some blown glass too. Now, you've made me hunger for art glass in the garden.~~Dee

Laura said...

I've tried to make those totems before but used the wrong type of glue! Next time I'll use epoxy! Thanks for the tips Barbara!

Angela said...

Since I live near Barbara, I get to see her glass art in person and have quite a bit of it in my garden. I LOVE it!

Kylee said...

I have a layered plates flower in the garden that my mom gave me for Christmas last year. I love it! Would love more glass in the gardens!

Sherriegardens said...

Have yet to move beyond the original large, plain gazing ball of years past! Barbara's art is beautiful!

Lindsay rebhan said...

Glass balls for watering pots when I am out of town. I need more glass in my garden! :)

Helen @ Gardening With Confidence said...

I need 'em gotta have them. They talk, you know. I need them to share the wisdom of my garden. H.

Trying again: I don't use glass in my garden, but that could change. The prizes tonight are very nice! I'm @cityslipper, by the way.
