Mad Bluebird Stained Glass Suncatcher GM
An eastern bluebird landed on a fence post in Michael L. Smith's back yard, hunkered down, fluffed up its feathers and fixed its black, beady eyes on the long lens of Smith's camera, sixty feet away. This was no ordinary bluebird. It was a grumpy bluebird. A ticked-off, glowering, down-in-the-beak bluebird. Hundreds of thousands of copies of this photo have been sold. Glassmasters has memorialized the Mad Bluebird in their proprietary process of stained glass. Unlike a photo, you can see the play of light and shadows that brings you face to face with this determined creature. The imagery is painstakingly recreated by artisans who hand apply translucent enamels to cathedral glass in a traditional one color at a time process. Each color is fired into the glass at temperatures above 1100-degree Fahrenheit. The enamels actually become part of the glass.
