Flock Together

Celebrate the special members of your flock with this beautiful handmade sculpture. A hand-blown glass bird perches atop a found tree limb, creating an ethereal display. For an added touch of magic, a vibrant feather is encased in the bird's fluid form, bringing the figure to life and giving you a one-of-a-kind work of art. Handmade by artist Kevin Smolark in Philadelphia.

Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

Made in Pennsylvania

Glass cannot be shaped with use of the hands, but rather manipulated with an idea, this is what attracts Kevin more than anything. Both form and function play a role in making a non-functional material into functional wares. The feeling of helplessness toward a medium impels him to find a way of being creative. The fragility as well as the strength of glass relates to the human being, as we are sensitive material. Kevin Smolark's glass blowing career began in 1999 at Salem County Community College.

Looks like advertised except the peacock feather was flipped where the visually appealing side was hidden.

Comments about UncommonGoods Birds of a Feather Sculpture:

My mother loved this gifted. The glass shape is very unique and looks great in the wooden base. The feather looks amazing in the sunlight and is very attractive; the colors are stunning.

My only complaint with this product is that the feather can move around in the glass and may need to be repositioned by either rotating the sculpture a few times or by sticking a thin object into the small hole in the glass part.
