This hummingbird measures approximately 7 inches wide by 6 inches high. We used Spectrum glass, the wings were a grey iridescent and the hummer was a gift for a lady who lives in Red Deer Alberta.

In 2011 we were asked to make a loon panel for the Order of the Eastern Star to be used as a gift to the Worthy Grand Patron of Alberta. This panel was approximately 12 inches wide by 9 inches high. For the hills we used Uroboros Harringbone glass. The loon was cut from one piece of Spectrum’s Black/White Clear Baroque. The dark water under the loon was a piece of Kokomo with Spectrum Sky Blue Wispy for the rest of the water.

For our oldest granddaughter Poppy’s 1st Christmas we obtained this Wren/Nuthatch bird house from The Wild Bird Store in Calgary and attached the small stained glass poppy. Poppy’s mom and dad have a large treed back yard in Calgary with lots of many varieties of birds, bird feeders and bird houses. As of last report it appeared that chickadees were moving in/or just helping themselves to nesting material already deposited there. It will be interesting to see who gets to use it.

These 4 Wrens are now available at The Wild Bird Store in Calgary. The measure approximately 4 inches by 4.5 inches and we used mostly Spectrum Glass, also 16 gauge tinned wire was used for the branch and the Wren legs.

For Christmas 2013 we purchased these bird houses from The Wild Bird Store in Calgary. After staining the outside of each we fabricated and attached a small stained glass design of a Blue Bird/Tree Swallow, along with a name plate so both boys would be able to keep track of their bird houses and new residents. Recently they and their dad put up these bird houses and more pictures can be found on their mom’s picture blog at the following link.
The next picture is of Ryley’s bird house.
