This gorgeous, sea loving, jewelled turquoise bird sculpture, with golden highlights was created by Athena Jane using vintage and modern glass and acrylic beads, gems and glass crystals, including recycled and upcycled jewellery from her collections, along with handmade Florentine paper and gold metal leaf. Here you can see the bird in its natural habitat- in sunshine on the seashore.


Layers of work went into making this little bird, as Athena Jane first sculpted an under structure using Epoxy resin and wire and then gradually added layers of handmade papers, glazes and paint to create an aged feel to the work. Finally gold metal leaf is added, clinging to traces and painted over for a detailed weathered effect. Each bird is a completely unique, with each artwork taking 6-8 hours to create.


Athena Jane began her collection of birds inspired by both Natural History Collections and the opulence of Venice; the traces of history and rich colours she discovered as she walked among the canals and beauty of the city. She has made hundreds of sparkling birds, the absolute symbol of freedom - vibrant, colourful, and joyful. Many have been exhibited in trails through Museum Collections. 

This beautiful bright little bird sculpture is ready to wing its way to you.
