Small Handmade Christmas Ball Ornament, Blue and Ice Chip

Product Description

Handmade art glass Christmas ornament and suncatcher, made with blue and clear glass. These are about 1.75" in diameter and exceedingly light at just about 15 grams per piece (about 3 nickels). 

This piece is made in my home workshop using a small glass tube with a bulb at the end - filling it part way with different colors of glass (frit), and then turning and slowly heating it with a Mapp gas blow torch to the point where it just turns molten. Then the piece is carefully blown and turned in order to get the desired shape. Finally, the ornament is put into a kiln and annealed at 950 degrees for a half hour and allowed to cool down to room temp inside the kiln over several hours. Once this process is done, the bulb section is broken off the glass pipe, edges are sanded down, and a silver plated cap is used to top off the piece.

As pieces are all handmade, they may contain small bubbles and imperfections that occur during the crafting process. If there are any major aberrations, these will be noted in the description of the item and reflected in the price.
