Light as a Feather

These stained glass feathers from artist Colin Adrian transform sunlight into joyous flights of color. Adrian was an internationally-trained painter before finding his wings in the medium of stained glass. Here, he captures the complex nature of a feather―the simple geometries of its outlines and the infinite variety of its coloring and detail. Hang one in any sunny window where they can catch your eye, or cluster all the varieties together for an extra lift in your day. Handmade in Brooklyn, New York.

Colin Adrian

Colin Adrian is an American artist born in Southern California in 1976. In 1999 he moved to Brooklyn, New York where he resides today. Throughout his life he has been interested in many facets of art, primarily oil painting. He received his BFA in fine arts and animation from the University of Oregon as well as having spent a year abroad in Florence Italy, where he studied figurative painting at the Lorenzo di Medici Art Institute. He discovered his love for stained glass while visiting the Marc Chagall windows in Nice, France. His stained glass pieces are typically bright and alive with color that will pleasantly illuminate any room or environment in which they are placed. He is an avid traveler, constantly observing and inspired by cultures other than his own which influence his artistic choices. "There's something so final about glass as opposed to oil. I can confidently walk away from a piece knowing it's finished."

          This came very securely wrapped and turned out prettier and more impressive then the picture may lead you to believe. I'm going to order one for myself.

                Comments about STAINED GLASS FEATHERS:

                The glass feather is gorgeous. The light shines through it beautiful and I find it to be truly unique. It is, however, a very delicate piece as it's made of glass and solder both of which are easily breakable. The product also arrives with the leather wrapped around the top, making it quite a delicate package.

                Service and delivery comments:

                The product first arrived poorly package and broken at the top (snapped off where the leather was wrapped around. But after speaking with a very pleasant and helpful customer service agent, they not replaced my item, shipped it expedited and made sure to package it appropriately. It arrived safe and sound!

                    I love the feather. It's large enough to be seen, but not overpowering, the colors are intense and very pretty when the light shines through, I wish I could afford more....the more expensive ones seem overpriced, as one could get a whole stained glass window handmade for about the same.

                        Comments about STAINED GLASS FEATHERS:

                        I received the "Diamond Eye" feather as a birthday present. This piece of art is something I foresee having for a very long time and could perhaps be referred to as heirloom quality. Very well made, though I would caution against hanging it outdoors.

                        It comes with a leather lanyard as an attractive way to display it; however since most stained glass items are affixed to a window pane, including a suction cup would have been handy (which is why I gave it 4 stars and not 5). Luckily I had one I could repurpose for use with the feather and simply tied the leather lanyard to it. Looks beautiful!
