Piping Plover (Charadrius melodus)
Inspired by those cute, little birds that scurry delightfully along the beach, the Piping Plover has been created 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 the bird in a kiln over many hours. Comes with a detachable driftwood perch that has been sanded on the underside for stability.
Handcrafted in Nova Scotia from glass (no paints, glazes or molds) with artisan studio-glass made in Nova Scotia. Size Approximately 3.5 " for adult, 2.5" for chick, or 1.5" for mini pocket sized.
- 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.
