Sandpiper (Calidris pusilla, Calidris minutilla)
The Sandpiper is a favourite little long-legged bird commonly found running around the mud-flats of the Bay of Fundy and along the sandy beaches of Maritime Canada. The shape is designed and hand-cut with layers of coloured crushed glass are built up on the clear shape before firing the bird in a kiln over many hours. Comes with detachable driftwood perch.
Handcrafted in Nova Scotia from glass (no paints, glazes or molds) with artisan studio-glass made in Nova Scotia.
Size Approximately 3.5"
- 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.
