This mosaic bird is my take on a robin. Hammered copper curls adorn the head and a Millefiori makes the eye. The breast is gorgeous rich red stained glass. The body is made with cream vitreous tiles and the outline tiles are iridescent grey.
The mosaic bird dangles from a waxed cotton cord and can be displayed indoors or outdoors.

The bird measures about (WxH) 18 cm x 14 cm
This mosaic has been made on a base that is weatherproof and the tiles are frost resistant. It will survive in mild climates outdoors. Hard frost and freezing weather may take their toll on a mosaic art piece over time. Once the frost starts, I put mine indoors or in the shed. Then in Spring, I celebrate with an 'unveiling' of my work - it's always exciting to get them out again!
