Hand Blown Birdhouse

The Cui birdhouse rejects traditional forms, blending the unorthodox materials of glass and rope to create an eye-catching and functional sanctuary. Each piece is blown by glass experts at New York’s Corning Museum of Glass and assembled by hand individually.

Designer: Adrian Froufe

    I love the look of this. I wish there were pictures with a bird’s nest inside.

    @Birds Freedom: If you can’t explain why, I’ll just assume you’re taking about yourself.

    It looks nice, but what happens if the glass breaks? Maybe try plastic instead?

  • Rahul S. says:

    There should be at least third rope wrap around to support the glass. I m afraid this thing will slip from the loose grip n get broken!

    Where is this beautiful castle in the background? Any idea

  • Bourdd says:

    Amazing shape! i really love the idea!

    I Don’t think is gonna slipe down. It remains me to similar nautical knots.

    The castle seems the castle of the VitraDesign summerworkshops, i think

  • Tino says:

    I really like this desing. Its originality is not in contradition whith their integration into the landscape and is an innovative birdhouse.

    Congratulations

    The proof of this design is not if we like it, but if birds like it – too that end, glass is not a good material for a bird house, it’s slippery for adult birds to perch on, will not absorb or allow moisture generated by a nesting bird and brood to escape easily and will also not protect/shelter birds from summer heat. Bird boxes are usually built in natural materials to deal with these problems, there is a danger that eggs/young birds not able to fly would overheat in this design, so it’s placement would need to be considered, a shaded corner out of sight, rendering even the aesthetic unneccessary. Buy 1, put it in the garden with a tea light in it. A far better use than as a bird house. Ill considered.

    agree. Now if it would have been recycled plastic instead of glass i could see the sense in that.

  • Wing says:

    Good shape, but need to consider what bird real need more than human think?

  • William says:

    Great idea, but I think the design would be even better if it took the style of rope tying from vintage japanese glass floats http://home.comcast.net/~4miller/collectn/germano/collect.jpg
