How do you feel about your Christmas decorations? Are they changed yearly for a new colour scheme? Perhaps you buy a new, special one each year and have built a treasured collection? This is where the idea for the "Heritage Collection" came from.
I've always loved shiny things and have slowly built a collection of decorations that I love to unwrap each year. Each one holds a treasured memory of the year we bought it, the songs we listened to as we decorated the tree, letting the girls stay up late and chatting about what Christmas means to us as a family.
Each set of ornaments will arrive in it's own cotton giftbag. You'll be able to tuck it away safely, year after year and remember the year your bought them.
There are 5 hanging decorations in each set, available in Red, Blue, Green, Gold, Clear (with a gold sheen).
They measure 5 x 4 cm plus a shiny white hanging thread that compliments each colour.
This stunning glass has an iridised coating that comes alive after firing. It reacts differently on each coloured glass and will slightly shift its colour depending on the light. The red ornaments in particular vary from a gold or silver sheen to a more rainbow effect, depending on which part of the glass sheet they have been cut. I endeavour to supply a mixture of finishes in each set but please do just email if you have a preference.
These ornaments are cut and drilled by hand. While every effort is made to make them all as similar as possible, due to the handcrafted nature of these items there will be slight variations across the ornaments.
I will happily send these directly to a recipient if you would like to gift them. Just add a gift message in the notes section and leave their address at the checkout.
Meet the Maker
Fused Glass Gifts designed to encourage and inspire!
Hi, I'm Amy, designer and maker at Orchard Art Glass.
I love to create fun and colourful glass pieces in my garden studio in Somerset. On my page you will find a variety of suncatchers, candle holders, ornaments and keepsake cards. Most of my pieces begin with a word, song or verse that sparks an idea for a piece. My hope is that these visual reminders will be an encouragement to you or provide a unique gift for you to bless someone with.
Glass is a beautiful medium in it's own right before I even begin the making process. It speaks to me often about our experience as created beings. God made us and said we were good and beautiful because we are His creation. We live in a fallen world and this causes us to become broken. It is through relationship with our Maker that we are formed, refined and ultimately made beautiful. God often takes the most broken and painful pieces of our lives and works a marvellously beautiful outcome.
In working with glass I see so many parallels as it is broken, crushed, ground, shaped and sifted before being fired at temperatures of up to 800 degrees. This forming and refining process creates a beautiful, shiny, smooth and unique piece.
My prayer is that my pieces will go into homes as a gentle and joyful reminder of the hope we have in relationship with a loving God.
