This bird ornament mixes orange and purple which I love! The body is made from vitreous purple tiles, the breast from orange stained glass and the outline from iridescent orange tiles. The head feathers are hammered copper.
The mosaic bird dangles from a waxed cotton cord and can be displayed indoors or outdoors.
Orange Bird Ornament, Garden Mosaic
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!
