Martini Hand Painted Glass - Firebird

I have finished working on this glass probably a month ago, maybe even more. I had only one problem - completely no time to take pictures and post it. Working till late night, bad weather or simply weak memory.
I planned to take glass with me to weekend trips and make really nice pictures in the mountains, on the river, next to the beautiful mansion... but each time when we arrive I realized that this happened again - I forgot the glass at home.
Finally I gave up and just make pictures in closest park during rollerblading.
This glass is special. There is first time when I have painted a leaving creature on glass. This is magic Firebird from Eastern European fairy tales.
The second thing that make this glass special - I have not painted whole surface of glass. I just only draw and painted bird on it. I am not sure that I use such approach painting other glasses.


  1. Hey, your works are AMAZING, you're very talented!

    I would like to ask you where did you buy things needed to make those little glass figurines? They look so cute, I would like to try to do stuff like that :)

    1. Ebru, thanks! I publish in this blog not only things I made, but also things that other peoples created. My creations are mostly handpainted glasses (you can find everything I made using tag "my handmade"). I did not made any of these glass figurines. Sorry for confusing you.

  2. Hey! Keep it up! This is a good read. I will be looking forward to visit your page again and for your other posts as well. Thank you for sharing your thoughts about art glass in your area. I am glad to stop by your site and know more about art glass.
    Most antique art glass was made in factories, particularly in the UK, the United States, and Bohemia, where items were made to a standard or "pattern". This would seem contrary to the concept of art glass as distinctive and showing individual skill. However, the importance of decoration in the Victorian era in particular meant that much of the artistry lay with the decorator. Any assumption today that factory-made items were necessarily made by machine was not generally so. Up to the end of the 1930s the majority of processes involved in making decorative art glass were performed by hand.
    All of the Le Verre Francais art glass collection sold extremely well and bidding was competitive. A “Lizard” pattern vase in yellows and reds sold for $3600, while patterns like the “Rhododendron “ and “Ash Tree” brought $3120 and $2880 respectively.
