Details

*Currently Sold Out, Will Be Making More Shortly*

Individually hand blown using techniques going back centuries, this Christmas ball is made using a variety of colors. Each ornament begins as liquid glass which is pulled from a furnace and blown by mouth into a hollow sphere. During this process color is added, which is allowed to flow and combine throughout the piece, making each ball truly one of a kind: the color never combines in the same way twice. While the piece is still hot a small glass loop is added to the top to make for easy hanging from a Christmas Tree or any other place you wish to hang it, and finally it it slowly cooled over the course of 24 hours in an annealer to ensure the glass is very strong, and not brittle.
