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 red 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.
By 1935, more then 250 million Holiday tree ornaments were being imported to the United States. By this time, Japan and Czechoslovakia had joined Germany in production.
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.
