I'm very pleased to offer this little bird to a good home...he's very easy to look after and will cheer up the drearest of days. This is a proto-type I made a few weeks back. The glass is hand-painted using kiln-fired paints and enamels in soothing shades of duck-egg blue and sage green. I added some copper wire to make the crest on the head, which I think looks rather dapper. However, it's a bit too labour intensive to do, and I wanted to be able to sell these birds on Folksy and Etsy at a really affordable price, so the rest of the flock will be bald of pate.
If you'd like to put your name in the hat to win this little fellow, just leave your name and a comment, and to make it more interesting, let me know what creature you'd like to see made in stained glass...I might even get inspired ;)
This is open to anyone and everyone - overseas people welcome!
I'll choose a winner next Tuesday (23rd June).
...and here's a rather gratuitous shot of our cosy (but messy) tent from our weekend's camping in glorious Purbeck. Magical.
