Hummingbird Feeder, Blown Glass #B2SP Steampunk
This Hummingbird feeder would make a great gift and comes in a gift box and comes with information on how to make your own nectar.
We did a lot of research before designing our hummingbird feeders. One of our goals was to create a feeder that does not drip. We found the Hummingbirds tongue is 2 to 3” long, this allowed us to make a feeder the bird drinks from the top, preventing dripping.
Our blown glass Hummingbird Feeders are made using Borosilicate glass, this glass is strong, durable and designed to weather the outdoor elements. The detachable spout on the feeder makes it easy to fill.
I made the butterfly charm using copper and silver wire incorporating gemstones and glass beads.
Each one of our Hummingbird feeders is made one at a time and are a husband and wife collaboration, Bill blows the glass feeder and spout and Rae creates the handcrafted chain work the feeder hangs by.
From the top of the wirework loop to the bottom of the feeder vessel this measure about 9.5 inches long.
The vessel itself is about 3” in diameter and holds about 5 oz of nectar.
All of our glass is annealed in a kiln run by a digital ramping controller.
Thank you for your time and have a fun and wonderful day,
