Faith, Hope, and Love in Everlasting Crystal

Posted on


Flowers are a symbol of beauty and hope that are given in times of blessing as well as hardship. Unfortunately, many hospital patients are unable to receive the gift of fresh flowers due to risk of infection. Flourish3D is a social entrepreneurship venture with the dual mission of providing beloved, flowers in crystal to at-risk patient populations and the public at large, while simultaneously raising funds for medical research. Each gift is created by CT scanning flowers from landmark sites at the campus of the University of Notre Dame, and then laser engraving the 3D visualization into ultra-pure glass. All net profits are donated to biomedical research in areas of cancer and infection.
