Fused Glass Robin Christmas Decoration
This cute robin is made entirely of glass and looks very festive hanging on a Christmas tree or in a window.
Based on an original illustration in Emma's sketch book, this little red robin is both lightweight and tactile.
These glass robins are individually crafted by hand in Nottingham. Whilst Emma is guided by her hand drawn templates for accuracy, each will naturally be unique.
These robins are created by cutting sheets of coloured glass by hand before shaping them with a diamond bit grinder. Glass powders are applied via a screen to achieve a gradient effect. All sections are fused together in her glass kiln at temperatures of over 700 degrees Celsius.
The metal hook is secured between the layers of glass during the firing process. A twine loop is added afterwards for hanging.
Each robin is nestled in tissue paper within a sturdy card box. All packaging is eco-friendly and sourced locally to reduce carbon footprint.
