Millefiori, Gold Leaf Smalti and Vitreous Glass on Board

Green Pheasant
These mosaics are only loosely based on those real silver pheasants – in the same way that all of my birds are not really meant to be natural history studies – it’s the attitude and character of the bird that I’m after and I’m quite pleased with the result of this one. I was trying to capture that look of complete bewilderment – so elegant yet so dumb.
