Prickly Pear | Cactus and Electric Blue Lemonade | Familja ta’ ħamsa
Emma Young's one-of-a-kind Prickly Pear sculptures.
Crafted from hand-blown glass, each piece is as unique as a cactus in the desert. Each Prickly Pear colour combination is inspired by an usual pairing of Pantone colours.
No two are alike, ensuring you have your very own mini cactus garden.
Familja ta’ ħamsa is Maltese for family of five - this Prickly Pair Family is designed to stay together.
While visiting her Grandmother in Malta, Emma was struck by the charmingly stubborn prickly pear that finds life in the arid Maltese landscape. The Prickly Pear, that she had once overlooked in Australia, was now a constant reminder of her family in Malta.
Emma uses a 'hot-joining' technique to fuse each Bud to its Pad, a permanent connection. To Emma, this symbolises the connection she feels between Australia and Malta, and the bond she shares with her family.
