Flowers from a Blacksmith: Creations by Jenny Pickford

Jenny Pickford is a blacksmith who specializes in natural sculpture, including flowers. She forges her creations from galvanized steel and crowns them with blown or spun glass made by glass artists from Bromsgrove, UK. This is truly beautiful and unique artwork, as you can see in these images from the Royal Horticultural Society Chelsea Flower Show of 2012, taken by Karen Roe and published by her under this Creative Commons License
