A soothing oval of blown glass, the 2013 Mistle Thrush Annual Egg is quietly breathtaking. Transparent spots of bluish-grey dot the opal background. Slightly clouded glass, the opal hued background was achieved by a technique called fire staining. A process reserved for select Annual Eggs & Birds, this method requires extra skill to create a misty-like surface which gives the egg a faint afterglow.
