Atlantic Puffin (Fratercula arctica)
The Puffin is a real athlete. He loves the ocean, dives deep but can also fly fast! Smartly dressed in a black and white tuxedo, he ups the ante in Spring with his colourful spring yellow and orange beak. This "Penguin of the North" would make a great festive addition at Christmas too!
Your charismatic Puffin is crafted entirely from glass - no paints, glazes or moulds. The shape was designed and hand-cut with layers of coloured crushed glass built up on the clear shape before firing in a kiln over many hours. The bird comes with his own detachable driftwood perch that has been sanded on the underside for stability. Simply slot the birds legs into the holes in the top side of the wood.
Handcrafted in Nova Scotia with artisan studio-glass made in Nova Scotia.
Size Approximately 3.5-4" for adult, 2.5-3" for chick.
- Please expect minor variations in tone, shade and shape due to the handcrafted, unique and whimsical nature of the work.
- Because the birds are created using successive layering of glass, their detail is best seen from the front.
