A glorious glass Christmas ornament of a flowering cactus. Realistically blown with its flowers that bloom for a brief time and thorn galore, a feat only few living glass ornament blower worldwide can achieve. This amazing ornament is has the stem glittered in two green glitter shades, but leaving the thorn and the flower to stand out from the center with shiny  black paint for the thorn, and yellow and red for the detailed flowers  each with five fully formed petals. Great ornament and homage to  the cacti that inhabit the south of the USA and parts of Mexico.   Because it is free blown each one is slightly different and yours is a limited edition of 1.

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.
