A friend requested a cardinal bird. As a result, I created this lovely bird sun catcher. Each red glass cardinal is hand cut. After the pieces of glass are fused together in my kiln, I drill a hole for a sturdy hemp cord. Each cardinal comes wrapped in a cellophane bag. Also included is a small card that says, “When cardinals appear, angels are near.” A thoughtful memento for those who have lost someone dear or just a reminder of loved ones.
These cardinals look lovely hanging in a window and also from a tree branch outside. As and example, in my own garden, I have a variety of glass birds that I hang in a tree with fishing line at various levels. They twirl delightfully as long as there is a slight breeze. In addition, you can place your cardinal in a plant. As you can see in n one of the pictures, I simply cut a wire coat hanger and used a pair of pliers to bend up an end to hang the cardinal from. These are wonderful Christmas or holiday ornaments as well.
Size is approximately 5.5″ wide and 2.75″ high
Please note! I do my best to ensure that photos are as true to color as possible. However, due to the many variations in monitors and browsers, the color may appear different on different monitors. In addition, lighting conditions at the time the photo was taken can also affect an image’s color particularly with transparent glass. Please check with me if the color of a piece is critical.
