Our featured ornaments are unique because each piece is hand painted using a process called reverse glass painting. The painting is done from the inside through the holes at the top and bottom of the glass globe using special narrow brushes and pointed sticks. Each piece has the design detail applied in layers over several days.
Bolihua or reverse glass painting is a very exacting art form. Each image is painted in reverse order on the glass. The finishing details of the painting must be put on the glass first, and must be done accurately as this is immediately covered with the next phase of the painting. This means the smallest finishing touches are done first, with the background completed last. For each ornament the process is the same, each one takes three days to complete.
Each ornament features the artwork of some our most renowned Southwest artists; Lawrence Vargas, Armando Pena, Devas and others. Display during the holidays or throughout the year.
