Blue Eyed China-Swirl's body is created from iridized transparent red art glass. Advanced formulated rainbow dichroic glass is used for the wing and tail accent, while two-toned dichroic glass make up the eye and beak. Dichroic glass shifts in color depending on the angle of view and lighting conditions, so expect these sections to vary in color. Each bird is unique. Display all year round. Approximate size: 5"w x 2.5"h x 3/8"d.
Incidental Bird Fact:
The world bird population is estimated to be between 200 and 400 billion individual birds. Compared to a human population of 7.594 billion, that translates to between 26 and 52 birds per person.
- All art work is handmade by Robert Wiener in the DC Art Glass Studio. Kilnforming is a method of shaping glass in a kiln using heat and gravity. Techniques used by the artist include fusing, slumping, casting, printmaking and coldworking. It is common of kilnformed glass to have slight color shifts and small "champagne" bubbles.
