"Gold Birds" 2017
Hand gilded metal leaf glass
The gold birds are made using my own exclusive hand gilded metal leaf glass. For several years I have gilded clear glass with different colours of metal leaf and used it in my work. The colour might change a little over the years in very small fluctuations ( tarnishing and turning bronze colours) but it will generally stay golden if kept indoors. The beauty of my bird wall sculptures are that they look quite realistic due to a 3D body and front wing, making them a really beautiful and unique collectible piece of art. The gold birds are built onto plywood and have a three dimensional front wing and body.
Sizes are approx 14cm beak to tail and wings are approx 13 cm long.
They come ready to hang for indoor display only.
You can see these and purchase from Fosse Beads and Friends gallery at the Black Swan Arts Centre, Frome.
