Glass Christmas ornament after Pierre August Renoir famous painting Dance in the city. After creating Dance in Bougival for the Museum of Fine Art Boston, we have created Dance in the City for the daPolonia line.  Dance in the City, Dance in the Country and Dance in Bougival were created by Renoir in 1883  to the order of  the art dealer Paul Durant Ruel as a series.  All three ornament feture a couple dancing in different environments, and wearing different cloths. Here the man is in a black suit and she in blueish gown with white highlights and long white glitter gloves. Legend has it that the dancing couple is actually Renoir and his wife.

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.
