Flock Together

Even when a baby bird learns to stretch its wings and fly, it's heart stays close to the nest. This pair of handcrafted glass paperweights is a sweet, visual reminder of that love. Bluebirds represent happiness and good fortune, and the pairing of a large and a small bird represents the bond between parent and child. The two can be displayed together in an affectionate tableau, or one can be sent with a child leaving home, so that parent and child both have a reminder of the other. Artist Jill Henrietta Davis shapes each one by hand, with each unique pinch of tail or beak seeming to give them distinctive personalities. Handmade in Providence, Rhode Island.

During her freshman year studying fashion at the Parsons School of Design, Jill Davis realized her clothes were more like wearable sculpture than fashion. Wanting to stay at Parsons, she began exploring different departments. The day she walked into the glass studio and saw molten glass for the first time, her search was over. “Glass is the most challenging and rewarding material I have ever encountered,” says Jill. “You can’t bully it—you are perpetually persuading and coaxing the glass into shape. Even the best living master glass blowers cannot always get the glass to do what they want! It’s this feisty streak that keeps me enchanted.”
