Passionate for Purple

Everything Else

Like all glass artists, I love color. Any color, every color but one color in particular. Purple.

So, when Radiant Orchid was named the 2014 Color of the Year in the spring Pantone color report, I will admit I was pretty excited.

Radiant Orchid manages to combine the luxurious richness of purple with the light-hearted fun of pink. Drawing from both the purple and pink color families, orchid elicits feelings of passion and energy it is associated with insight, mystery, magic and ambition as well as hope, peace and good judgement. Plus, being in the purple family, it is considered a royal color; who doesn't love that?

From flowers to dusky sky scenes, this surprising shade can really make a project pop!
