Alchemy: Turning Scientific Glass Into Precious Christmas Trees In Maristoca, Italy
Giovanni's Legacy:
His children, Luigi, Roberto and Monica

In the Veneto, just outside of Venice, one family brings to life the most glorious Christmas trees. In the 1960s, Giovanni Battista was fascinated by the nature of scientific glass. The crystal-clear, lightweight, and incredibly durable material called borosilicate used to create test tubes, pipettes and all kinds of laboratory instruments. He went to Switzerland to learn this trade, and then returned home to create artistic glass treasures. Giovanni's Venetian glass is very different from that found from other artisans in Murano. Though Giovanni's own time on this earth has ended, his children are devoted to keeping his legacy alive.

It's Not So Easy Terri Tries To Decorate Polish Pottery

On a recent trip to Boleslawiec, Poland, our founder and CEO, Terri Alpert, was given a chance to step into the shoes of our artisan, creating her very own piece of Polish Pottery. Needless to say, we suggest she not quit her day job.

 

Polish Pottery Jack-O'-Lantern,
Boleslawiec, Poland
 

Watch our Polish Pottery Halloween collectible come to life as our artisans in Boleslawiec, Poland, use hand-carved sponges and fine brushwork to paint witches, pumpkins, spiderwebs, and black cats onto a smiling jack-o'-lantern.

First our artisans pour slip (watered-down clay) into the pumpkin mold. After the clay dries inside the mold, it is opened up and the jack-o'-lantern is removed and fired. Next the pumpkin is painted by hand using hand-carved sponges. Once the paint dries, it is dipped in glaze, so that when it comes out of the kiln the second time, the clay is as smooth and shiny as glass.
