This very lovely hollow blown thrush was made by Michael Hunter for Twists Glass. A very collectable work of art, she has been created using  a complex method of glass making called zanfirico - originally from venetian glass artists.

The thrush is larger than our garden visitors, with a shorter tail and a very plump  chest, meaning she looks really cute.

She weighs approximately 525g, is 11cm tall, 15cm long and 10cm wide.

Michael Hunter's signature is etched into the base. 

She is a real beauty and would be a wonderful addition to any household of bird lovers or collectors.


Zanfirico is a technique invented by glass makers on the Venetian island of Murano, Italy. Zanfirico glass consists of fine filigree canes which have been stretched and twisted to form beautiful lattice patterns.

Her eyes are made using murrine cane -  coloured patterns or images made in a glass cane that are revealed when cut in cross-sections.
