Birds of Paradise 1992

Jeffrey Hamilton

Surry Hills, Australia

Artist's Description

Created as a privacy screen for a house in Dundas, NSW in 1992 this stained glass triptych uses a wide variety of glasses including *Lambert*’s streakies and silenium mouthblown for the birds themselves. Also a Bullseye irridescent for the deep blue/black. Such beautiful creatures deserved the most beautiful glass.

In my research for this project I found a beautifully illustrated 2nd hand book at a favourite store called *Tyrell*’s in North Sydney, sadly long gone. The original illustrations are by John Gould
