Iris in Favrille

Blue Dutch irises bloom in my garden every spring and bring great pleasure to me. The buds and blooms burst with colour and the lines and patterns of the sprouting stems and leaves fascinate. My inspiration for “Iris in Favrile” can be found in the iridescent and opalescent Favrile glass that Louis C Tiffany created a century ago in America. Tiffany named his glass FAVRILE , a derivation of the Saxon word fabrile, meaning “handwrought “desired.
