Artist creates flower-friendly boutonnieres out of hand-blown glass.

Anyone who has pinned flowers to their person is familiar with the graceless speed at which they proceed to wilt. When the situation calls for a boutonniere, wouldn’t it be nicer if your petite floral arrangement could stay fresh all day long? This is precisely the problem Omer Polak aims to solve with his handblown glass vase pins.

The artist’s teardrop-shaped ornaments can be filled with a thimble-sized amount of water and either a single fresh-cut stem or a tiny bouquet. Polak writes that the boutonniere tradition began as a “manly decoration symbolizing wealth and male fertility” in the early 20th century, but his handmade pins are suitable for both men and women. Given the age-old language of flowers — violet for loyalty, willow for sadness — the stems may be chosen for specific symbolic purposes.
