Two ornaments in one! This festive fused glass bauble is deceptively complex as it requires multiple kiln firings. The base is created from many tiny bits of transparent light green glass. An opaque dense white glass snowflake is made seperately and then "tack" fused to the base. The added design element contributes to a three-dimensional appearance. This ornament celebrates the winter season and can be hung alone or in a grouping. Mix & match with other Modern Classic Ornament styles.
Today's most expensive holiday ornament is valued by the National Association of Goldsmiths at $130,000. It was designed by Embee Jewels of London and boasts 188 red rubies and 31 carat diamonds. It took over 130 hours just to set the gems.
All art work is handmade by Robert Wiener in the DC Art Glass Studio. Kilnforming is a method of shaping glass in a kiln using heat and gravity. Techniques used by the artist include fusing, slumping, casting, printmaking and coldworking. It is common of kilnformed glass to have slight color shifts and small "champagne" bubbles. May contain sharp edges. Handle with care.
