Carved round ball glass Christmas ornaments. Deep carving and wonderful detail.  A tribute to the one and only Escher and his school of fish swimming in the shadows of each other.  Known for his Mathematically inspired woodcuts, and amazing images of repetitive geometric shapes with no overlaps and no gaps. The fish painting is considered to be part of his Tessellation painting, in which he has engaged for quite a long period.  The book Gödel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid  show the similarity between the famous logician, painter and composer. Our ornament offer a colorful school of fish topped off with silver and pink ribbons. A must have for any Escher lover.  Will look great on the tree or on an hanger for year round display.

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.
