An exquisite rendering of Flora from Sandro Botticelli’s Primavera masterpiece. It was painted in the late  1470’s early 1480’s  and is one of the most popular painting in the Western world. The beautiful Flora the Roman Goddess of spring is wearing a floral dress,she has a flower necklace and flower wreath on her head. She is throwing flowers all around her.The image of a young woman and flowers both allude to rebirth and continuity.   The transparent delicate,generously glittered,  elongated ornaments looks slightly different in different light, a marvel of workmanship.

The daPolonia glass Christmas ornaments are designed and made in Mia’s studio in Krakow Poland. Steeped in centuries old traditions of glass ornaments making, drawing on the love of art and history, the ornament continues an old tradition of uncompromising quality and artistry.

The ornaments are fully made by Mia, and 100% hand made in the old fashion way. Starting with hand blown shapes and balls, hand silvering, coating with the base coat, and hand painting and glittering. The glitter we use is environmentally safe and is the same glitter used in cosmetics.  All the molds are proprietary created by our own mold maker. In the introduction to the ornament section you can see a video of how one of our ornament is made from scratch.
