This mosaic bird has an iridescent yellow outline, an orange vitrous tile body and a gold streaked wing dotted with Millifiori. The face is black and set off against shimmery streaky tiles. Hammered copper curls are feathers on the head. This bird always wears lipstick.

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!
