A fused glass cheeky little bird with a heart shaped embossed wing detail.
Having spent some of my childhood in Australia, these little chaps were inspired by the flocks of brightly coloured parakeets that would visit our garden to perch in the fruit trees and 'help' us eat our homegrown fruit.
Each one measures 6 x 10 cm from beak to tail tip and are hand cut from a rainbow selection of coloured sheets of glass. They are then coldworked, painted with a cheeky little beady eye, a contrasting glass beak, a sprinkling of rainbow glass frit and fused to include a heart shaped kiln carved wing detail. Once cool, a small hole is drilled and a length of strong nylon thread added so you can hang your cheeky chappie to keep an eye on things and spread a bit of birdie love!
