This bird is a characterful creature made using a variety of beautiful tiles and glass. The outer tiles are irridescent and reflect the light beautifully in the sun. There is also Millefiori, foil backed tiles, stained glass and little copper curls of feathers. The wing is a lovely piece of glass with green and blue streaks. The same glass is used on the tail. The mosaic bird dangles from a waxed cotton cord and can be displayed indoors or outdoors.
Green and Blue Mosaic Bird Ornament

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!
