Pheasant Retrieve




I am not sure I am in like of this piece. One thing I think this tail is too long
I might shorten it
if for no other reason..it won't get easily broken.

It is pretty self explanatory, Labrador retrieving a pheasant...in glass.

I don't have a way to hang it without moving panels so I did the best I could getting the picture over a light source...but it doesn't show the birds colors well.
Maybe a better picture will emerge...
I am sure everyone is fine with the one I have :)
One little bit of information that doesn't get transferred is the textured glass I used for the dog fur. This is a very cool piece of glass. The texture is a fine raised combing and the glass is really thick to allow for the texturing and gives the streaks a finer subtleness, like fur would be...
This for the Pheasants Forever Banquet order too.

Wow !! You're so great in making of this Pheasant. It's in form of glass ? Or it'll see through under the light.

Since I have a lab that loves his toy pheasant I think this is a really great piece. I agree the tail may be a little too long. The dogs glass is amazing, your work is amazing.

Hi, Mary! I really like your retriever with his pheasant. You really got the shape of a labrador's head. And I can see texture in the glass, too. I bet it is even more awesome in real life! :-)
