MAKING OF GLASS CHRISTMAS ORNAMENTS
All of our ornaments are individually mouth-blown and hand-painted in Germany or Poland. Over the years, thousands of different types of ornaments have been, and continue to be created. New trends from lifestyle and fashion find their place on the Christmas tree. The creation of a Christmas ornament involves first an idea, next a sketch, and then the formation of an ornament mold. Creativity, attention to detail, and experience are necessary skills of an artist to be able to form a mere piece of clay into the first new ornament model.
This model, which is actually a plaster mold, is used as the basis for the glass blowing mold. In order to create an ornament from this mold, a raw glass bulb is heated to about 1300 degrees Fahrenheit. Then the glass artist takes the melted glass and sensitively blows it into the mold. At this stage, the ornament comes alive. Intricate decoration and hand-painting are added touches which make every piece even more unique.
