I love birds; they are such expressive creatures. I raised caged birds as a child and enjoy observing birds at my outdoor feeders. My glass birds are abstracted creatures unlike anything in nature. They are birds from my imagination, embodying the spirit of a real bird. Birds love the spring and the summer. “Sapphire Bird” holds flowers within as a keepsake of spring, almost like a reliquary. The exterior is hand painted and has a millefiori eye, truly a majestic creature!
