This hand made stained glass suncatcher bird will bring a splash of color to any space, and a smile to any face.
These silly suncatcher birds are one of our most popular designs. Lots of folks buy them as dorm room gifts, new apartment gifts or house warming gifts – but you don’t really need an occasion or excuse. Just buy one for yourself!
These birds are crafted using the copper foil (Tiffany) method. I individually cut the glass pieces for the body, tail feathers, and beak. The edges are dressed to remove the sharp edges, and each piece is wrapped in copper foil, which is then burnished. The pieces are soldered together, and a hanger is attached. Next, the eyes and legs are lovingly fashioned and installed. After inspection and cleaning a patina is applied, and then polished. As the final step, each silly bird is thoroughly cleaned and waxed.
These Stained Glass Suncatcher Birds measure approximately 5.5″ from tail to beak, and 5″ from top of the back to the bottom of the feet.
