A spectacular free blown glass Christmas ornament of two cardinals perched on a tree branch surrounded by heart shaped branches. The adorable cardinals are of course red with red glittered body, with long tail, yellow beaks and crowns. They sit on a wide brown branch, and are surrounded by curved green branches that form a heart shape. Very challenging technically and artistically, there are only a few master blowers, whose number is in the low single digits, who can rise to this level and create such a masterpiece. The details are just mind bugling. Take a good look and you’ll see that one of the beaks of the cardinal is wide open while the second is closed, their tails extend quite a bit behind their bodies, and you can also see their wings elegantly folded by their side extending slightly from the body. Hard to tell from the picture and the video, but as this is fully hand blown without a mold, so many details vary slightly in the fascinating way that hand work transcends into a work of art. Each cardinal tail is slightly different in size and bulk, ditto the beaks and the crowns at the back of their head. The Heart shaped branches in brown glitter and green with green glitter are winding and curved. The A beautiful universal theme, that can be hung on the tree or on a hanger for a year round display. Because it is free blown each one is slightly different and yours is a limited edition of 1.
