mosaic birdbaths are each works of art made by Peg. Each one is
unique. The individual glass pieces - hundreds of them - are glued onto
a 14" terra cota plant saucer. Each piece is individual cut to fit the
pattern , glass gems are added on the outer rim, then the entire piece
is grouted and sealed for use as a birdbath. The waterlies and pansies
birdbaths pictured below are done on plastic saucers. The gems are
located on the inner top edge.
The copper, tulip-shaped stand has copper vines, leaves and a marble is made by Gordon. A pipe is placed in the ground and the stand is placed over the pipe for support. The copper has a green verdigris.
In colder climates the birdbath saucer must be brought inside as freezing and thawing will damage it. When the birdbath is dry in the springtime, it should be sealed before returning it to your garden. The stand can remain outside and can be used with a plastic saucer to feed the birds in the wintertime.
Because of size and weight delivery or pickup at a show is prefered. However, birdbaths done in plastic saucers are more shippable. Peg does many special orders each year so if you have a specific design in mind, contact her.
The mosaic birdbath with stand (and ground pipe) is $135 + shipping/handling ranges from $25 to $45.
