The Magic of Glass at Christmas Time
Glass is one of the few mediums in the art world that can convey an infinite number of messages at the same time. Simultaneously hot and cold, stiff yet fluid, magnifying but minimizing, glass is always a welcome decoration for a Christmas tree. A hand blown glass ornament displays elegance and refinement whilst allowing for a bit of whimsy. Nothing sparkles and reflects light in quite the same way.
Many people find blown glass Christmas ornaments to be overly traditional; nothing is further from the truth. It can be created in so many shapes and forms that there are themes that will appeal to anyone and complement all decors. Of course, a traditional, monochromatic theme of silver, gold and white is best paired with the clear simplicity of glass but other options exist as well.
Many hand blown designs come in a multitude of vibrant colors and patterns; a far cry from the conservative crystal pieces of years gone by. Another misconception about glass ornaments is that they are overly fragile. Obviously, glass can be broken if thrown about, however it is much more resilient than many people realize. Many pieces are made thick and sturdy in order to stand the test of time. A high quality blown glass ornament, especially one made from full lead crystal, can be passed down for several generations. As long as one is careful with their things, there should not be any issues with the longevity of glass. A tree that includes nothing but all glass ornaments can come of as a bit boring though. It is best to mix up your look rather than overload the tree with only one form of decoration. This adds visual interest whilst allowing for the glass pieces to stand out and truly shine; this is exactly what they are meant to do.
