Blown Glass Ballet Slippers
Tchaikovsky s famous ballet, The Nutcracker Suite, tells the story of Clara, who is given a nutcracker for Christmas. She falls asleep and dreams it has come to life. After a battle with the Mouse King, Clara and her Nutcracker Prince travel through a snowy forest to the magical Kingdom of Sweets where they meet the lovely Sugar Plum Fairy.
Each glass ornament is mouth-blown into finely carved molds. A solution of hot liquid silver is added for exceptional color and vibrance. Ornaments are then hand-painted and hand-glittered for a fine finish.
