René Burri Glass Chickens

From his glass studio in the in the Swiss Alps, René Burri works

together with his wife and several apprentices to create his whimsical

line of glass chickens and other animals. René uses a glass technique

know as "Lampwork" to handblow each piece. He starts with a hollow

tube of clear glass. Colored pigment is brushed onto the glass to

create the beautiful color striations and marbling effects. The tube is

then heated before a gas torch and René blows and forms the desired

object by hand creating a truly unique gift.
