This is the first bird in the ‘mini’ Garden Bird series. This petite bird will add some color to your garden outside or houseplants inside.
These little birds make a bright addition to your garden all year round. On legs of stainless steel that are permanently fused to the glass body, this bird can ‘perch’ in soil or gravel, in any type of weather. This bird is fused glass — it will not fade, shrink, or warp in the sun.
I created this pattern and hand-cut each piece of this bird, assembling it on a base of clear (see 3rd photo) with the steel legs sandwiched between two glass layers. This bird is a pale blue with bright yellow for the wing details. The eyes, beak, wing, and tail elements have been left softly raised. Total height is just over 4″ and the bird body is 3″ by 1″.
This little bird makes a great gift for bird and nature lovers, gardeners, and those who appreciate handmade original artwork. This bird is also part of the Trees and Birds Project 2020. I am donating 10% of the list price (before time/materials, processing fees, and postage are figured in) to bird organizations to help birds locally and around the world.
