Dale Chihuly, Louis Comfort Tiffany, Rene Lalique: these famous artists pushed the boundaries of glass design, bringing art glass to the forefront of popular culture.
Lunada Bay Tile has expanded upon its passion for the breathtaking beauty of art glass with Birdscape. This collection of handmade glass birds draws on a fusion of glassmaking traditions to create one-of-a-kind works of art. Each of these delicate avian creatures is lovingly crafted using the lost wax technique, which entails the use of a hand-carved wax mold, plaster, and molten glass. Beautifully carved details in the feathers, wings, and tails make each bird a unique treasure.
“The Birdscape collection embodies the relationship between museum-quality art glass and Lunada Bay Tile glass mosaics,” said President and CEO of Lunada Bay Tile, Carl Steadly, an avid collector of art glass who expresses his artistic vision through the creation of glass mosaic tile.
Since 1992, Lunada Bay Tile has produced handcrafted glass tile collections through old and new techniques of glass making that elevate design possibilities and create statements using color, shape, texture and luminosity. Each new tile collection strives to connect people to the aspirational space of their imagination.
“Glass is a versatile medium, and we are very excited about being part of this new movement where glass is growing as the choice for artistic expression,” Steadly said. “The delicate, expressive creatures of Birdscape are a cross pollination of perspectives, making it possible for glass mosaics to become part of a larger conversation about personal expression.”
Create your own narrative by displaying these glass birds individually or in an installation that emulates a flock of birds in flight. The Birdscape collection is available in three styles and six colors.
