These one-of-a-kind ornaments take weeks, months, or a year to create. They are painted on the inside of the glass bulb, which is a technique called Hinterglasmalerei. I create my ornaments through a layering process, dependent on colors, drying times, sizes, and shapes of the ornament.

No two ornaments are the same. Each one is enhanced by Offray ribbon, and is signed and numbered by the artist. The ornament is for indoor use only, and can be hung throughout the year.

Christine Otis’ inspiration comes from nature, like river deposits, the changing colors of the seasons, like Fall leaves and Spring flowers, ice floes, ice cracks, frost, glistening snow, and other natural occurring elements.

I hope this unique piece brings as much joy to you as it did for me in creating it!
