Michael L. Smith's wildlife art glows with realism in beautifully handcrafted stained glass!
Mad Bluebird - Photographer Michael L. Smith took one picture of a bluebird and changed his life forever. An eastern bluebird landed on a fence post in Smith’s back yard, hunkered down, fluffed up its feathers and fixed its black, beady eyes on the long lens of Smith’s camera, sixty feet away.
More than 20 years later, Smith still cannot entirely believe it. This was no ordinary bluebird. It was a grumpy bluebird. A ticked-off, glowering, down-in-the-beak bluebird. Hundreds of thousands of copies of this photo have been sold. One stained glass roundel featuring this adamant looking bluebird was given to Madame Albright after a particularly determined speech at the United Nations. She acknowledged a kindred spirit with the bird.
Who knew the worldwide acclaim this bird would achieve and bring to photographer, Michael L. Smith? Glassmasters has memorialized the Mad Bluebird in their proprietary process of stained glass. Unlike a photo, you can see the play of light and shadows that brings you face to face with this determined creature.

The Renown Work of Glassmasters
Internationally acclaimed Glassmasters, creators of the world's finest home décor size stained glass. Glassmasters production is an ambitious undertaking. Glassmasters craftsmen have taken the rich secrets of the ancient craftspeople and combined their techniques with innovative procedures.
Glassmasters takes pride in their reputation for having created the finest museum reproductions in the world — the Metropolitan Museum, Cabela's, National Wildlife Federation and many other prestigious organizations. Glassmasters work is seen representing renowned artists such as Chagall, Matisse, Tiffany, Disney and the Jim Henson Foundation.
Licensed imagery is painstakingly recreated by artisans who hand apply the translucent enamels to a richly-textured cathedral glass in the traditional one-color-at-a-time method. Each design is individually crafted; each design is a work of art. Each color is fired into the glass at temperatures above 1000 degrees Fahrenheit; the colors actually become part of the glass. Each design is unique.
Because color and glass are one, genuine stained glass art will be as colorful and beautiful a century from now as it is today. We invite you to join us in this Celebration of Color and Light by displaying the design in a window or in front of a lamp or candle on a desk or table. The play of light changes from the morning light to the rosy glow of sunset. The scene comes to life as only stained glass can.
More than a conversation piece, this stained glass symbolizes good taste in fine art. It is our hope that this art will bring much pleasure to you or your recipient.
Glassmaster's motto is "There is nothing else like it in the world!”
