The beautiful story of a glass Christmas ball

 
How is a glass Christmas ball made?

Each one of them is blown and painted individually with special care which ensures its uniqueness and high quality. Our experienced painters are inspired by both traditional patterns and modern trends. They work throughout the whole year to develop their ideas and form larger collections in order to offer you something new each Christmas.

Christmas ornament?


The production process is divided into four stages:


At first, the glass is heated directly by the flame, then the hot glass is blown into various shapes using a special form or directly by one's mouth when the desired shape is a simple ball, drop or a bell. The art of making glass balls requires a long learning process that can take several months. A skilled Christmas balls artisan can make up to a hundred balls a day.


In the second phase a silver solution is poured inside the ornament. A chemical reaction between hot water applied to the outside surface of the ball and the silver solution poured inside gives the ball a magical effect of reflecting the light like an enchanted mirror.


The third phase is drying. The balls have to be completely dry before any colouring can be applied.


Then the decorations are painted: matte, glossy or transparent colour is applied. Our artisans decorate the ornaments with hand-painted motifs. For some they also use glitter, beads or feathers to make them even more unique.


Finally, the neck of the glass ball is cut to add a metal hook so the decoration can be hanged on the Christmas tree.


The final stage is the packaging of the finished ornaments. In order to guarantee highest quality, we make a final check of the products to make sure they are perfect before shipping them to our clients.
