My robin style mosaic bird has a stained glass belly with matching wing glass. The green edged tiles have an iridescent sheen so reflect different colours when the sun trails across. The body is made from white vitreous tiles and a tiny Millefiori makes the eye. Copper curls sprout from the head to make feathers on this whimsical mosaic bird ornament.
The mosaic bird dangles from a waxed cotton cord and can be displayed indoors or outdoors.

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!
