Lukeke Birds by Lukeke Design - Colours & Styles
16th March 2021
He runs his glass casting studio in Te Atatu, Auckland (New Zealand) where along with his team of glass artists, they produce beautiful, life-like and full of flight glass Birds. Each new design is carefully modelled by hand in clay capturing elegant detail and the essence of the feathery subject being recreated. From this model a master is made to create moulds for casting.
The Lukeke collection of birds are wall-mounted sculptures, which can be used to create unique installations. Whether a single bird to create a 'trompe l'oeil' effect - as if a single bird has literally flown in the room - a romantic pair or a full flock, they are available in 9 styles and in over 40 colours, so the possibilities are endless. With news designs regularly added to the collection, you can also start small and increase your artwork over time. They can be mounted in any room including bathrooms and look particularly poetic arranged around windows allowing natural light to illuminate each hue. Once mounted, they produce beautiful soft shadows of colour.
The birds are simple to install as each one has a permanently attached screw. The full range of birds and colours are shown below. We hold some stock in the gallery, please contact us for further details. For all orders the delivery time is approximately 6 to 8 weeks and subject to the quantity desired.
