This particular owl is done in shades of green. A light, minty green with barely-there brown streaks is used for the body and head. The small wing section is made of a lovely transparent, rippled pale green glass. And the "eyebrows," eye centers, and large section of the wing are made of a deep green, iridized and streaky. The whites of the eyes and the beak are a transluscent, slightly streaky white glass. As you can see from the photos, many of the owl's features have been attached by stacking them atop his body, giving him some dimensionality.
I have used re-claimed scrap glass from a local opalescent glass producer.
The spiral "branches" have also been made by me, by twisting, forming, and leading copper wire.The leading and wire branches have been patina'd to achieve a rich black. These areas have also been oiled to protect them from the effects of the elements and time.
From head to belly he measures 4.5 inches (11,5 cm).
From wing tip to outermost spiral is 6 inches (15,2 cm).
