I created these birds as a glass representation of my watercolor birds, an example is shown in the last photo. It was fun trying to show the fluidity of watercolor in glass. Each bird is definitely one-of-a-kind, just like their watery counterparts.
The base panel glass is rainbow iridescent — the iridescent colors vary with each piece. The bird body was constructed out of sheet glass and the feathers and wings were created using my propane-oxygen torch — pulling the various glass colors. The legs/feet are also hand-pulled glass.
This guy is called “Different Drummer” because I fused the base glass with the iridescent side UP, which gives it a different look. More texture and more iridescences upfront.
This piece is 3.5×5.25″ (glass) plus a handmade copper hanger, which brings the total height to 7.5″. The copper wire hanger has been upcycled from electrical wire.
