the collector

This mosaic is inspired by the story out of the UK recently about a young girl who likes to feed the crows in her backyard, and they began to bring her shiny treasures.  They are extremely smart birds, and this is a documented behavior, usually collecting their finds in their nests or gifts to mates.

The work is approx 32 in H x 24 in W, iridescent and dichroic stained glass fusions, vitreous glass tile, unglazed porcelain tile, large milifiore, found objects, chandelier pendant.
