Cherry and lavender glass are applied to a gather of clear then fused in the furnace.

Special care is taken not to blend the color combination
so that each color occupies it's own space within the design.

The individual colors represent flower petals of a cherry tree blossom.

Japanese turn out in large numbers at Hanami festivals to celebrate the beauty of the Sakura at park, shrine and temple flower-viewing parties.

The custom of Hanami dates back centuries with festivals being held as early as the third century CE.

In 1912 to celebrate Japan's growing friendship with the United States a gift of 3,020 cherry blossom trees was made which were planted in Sakura Park, Manhattan.

The gift was renewed with another 3,800 trees in 1965.

There are now collections around the country of flowering Japanese cherry trees in the tens of thousands.
