Art Glass Bird - Wagtail


This exquisite handmade glass wagtail figurine is the perfect gift for nature lovers, birdwatchers, and those who appreciate beauty. Inspired by childhood summers spent in Austria, artist Thomas von Koch uses lamp-working methods to create pieces based on nature and whimsy with remarkable craftsmanship and detail.

Although slight variations in size and design are expected with hand-crafted pieces,  each bird measures about 6” wide x 6” long.


  • Each bird measures about 6” wide x 6” long
  • Since these birds are made by hand - one at a time -slight variations in size, design, and color should be expected
