Bird wings and tail feather are made from paper-thin sintered glass powder.
Hummingbirds symbolize joy and light playfulness. This swift bird is known for its speed and wild nature, but is here shown tangled and caged, like a prized possession in a twisted Beauty and the Beast reminiscent story. Made of delicate powdered glass, this piece is about the resilience of the fragile bird while speaking about manipulation and confinement.
