Cloisonné Ornaments

Each ornament starts with being hammered and formed to create the desired shape. Copper is used because it is easily hammered and stretched. The design is initially drawn on a copper ball. The copper wires are formed and shaped into the design on the ornament. After the wires are shaped, they are placed onto the copper ball and soldered. The wires create small compartments called “cloisons.”

Glass Ornaments

Each ornament is hand-painted on the inside of the glass ball, a process that originated in China in the 1600s. The ornaments are made from handblown glass, creating a clear glass ornament. The artisan paints a sketch of the design, using a fine-tip brush. The complete design pattern is outlined inside the ball. The artisan then fills in the sketch with colors as indicated on the design. The last step is to fill in the solid background color.

It can sometimes be a trial and error as sometimes the paint changes once the color is fired. It is not an exact science, meaning there is no specific formula for PMS 128, but an art form perfected after many years of practice.
