Gallery Feature Friday: Sugar Flowers

sugarflowerswm

 

Stats:

  • Composition – Sugar
  • Weight – Approximately 5 pounds
  • Width – 12 inches
  • Height – 8 inches
  • Production Time – Approximately 4 hours. 
  • Notes – One of the few Pulled Sugar pieces that I have done. Vines are pulled sugar. The bubbled effect on the flat pieces were achieved by splattering oil on a silpat, and pouring hot sugar over it. The sugar naturally moves around it leaving the holes. The flowers were made with brass cabinet handles. I just sprayed the, with oil, and dipped them into colored sugar. after they cooled, they popped right off.

 

Song stuck in my head at the time of this post: Shine On by Guy Cruz
