Grand Rapids Public Museum Hand Painted Ornament
This beautiful, inside painted glass ornament continues an ancient art form prized by collectors. The artist, choosing from a selection of miniature curved and bent-shafted brushes, hand paints every minute detail on the inside of the hand blown glass ornament. In painstaking fashion the brush is repeatedly inserted through the opening in the glass, initially to outline the design followed by detailed application of the colors one by one. The entire hand painting process for each piece requires up to two days. No two pieces are ever identical. This inside painted glass ornament is a keepsake to be treasured from generation to generation.
