Raspberry-Shouldered Finch

Art Glass Sculpture

Created by David Jacobson
This is a hot-sculpted glass bird sitting on a blown glass rock. Bird is decorated with two colors of raspberry and tan. The rock is made up of raspberry-colored canes, with a few bright green canes for accents. White glass frit forms the base undercolor. Jacobson strives for the precarious balance of the bird just landing on the rock. In making the bird, the artist heats it, pulls and stretches it, and pinpoint heats it with a small torch so he can manipulate smaller areas with control. This bird does balance on its own, but the bird is permanently attached to the rock for security.
