American Goldfinch (Spinus tristis)
Studio-Glass Bird Ornament
What's not to love about the Goldfinch?! Beautiful bright yellow Canary-like songbirds that flock to our gardens with complex songs, and love munching on seeds. These colourful little birds add a touch of grace and sunshine to your home interior or office, and are a perfect pick-me-up gift to show you care! Please note the tone and shade of yellow glass may vary.
I created your Goldfinch entirely from glass - no paints, glazes or moulds. The shape is designed and hand-cut, then layers of coloured crushed glass are built up on the clear shape before firing the bird is in a kiln over many hours. I initial each bird on his reverse. The bird comes with his own detachable log 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.

- The bird you're purchasing is not the exact bird in the picture, but will look very similar. Please expect minor variations in tone and shade 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.
