This bird is almost big enough to fledge out of the ‘mini’ Garden Bird series, but not quite. Still a ‘teenager’ bird. This sparkly bird will add some color to your garden outside or houseplants inside.
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 sparkly mix of green and white. The sparkle is from a natural element in this glass called aventurine. The wings and tail are a nice medium blue. The eyes, beak, wing, and tail elements have been left softly raised. Total height is just over 5″ and the bird body is 3.5″ by 2″.
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.
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.
