Mimi Peacock Inspired Glass Ornament

Mimi, our peacock-themed collectible glass ornament is the post-retirement venture of two sisters from Philadelphia. Judy and Lynn were inspired by the beautiful and complex colors of a peacock to create each ornament. Each one is masterfully handcrafted, exclusively for Uno Alla Volta, from a satin finish Polish blown-glass ball upon which our artisans bestow a unique personality, with just the right coif and a head full of fanciful trims. No detail was spared as each is finished all around featuring green and purple ribbons, tulle, natural feathers and faux gems. Each glass ornament is created, uno all volta, from the hearts and hands of artisans. No two are exactly alike. Mimi, a limited edition of 125, measures approx. 6in. diameter.

Handmade goods have cultural significance in almost every subculture and financial class. While the upper echelon may delight in the exclusivity of an object, crafting culture permeates the trendy shops of modern-day, millennial Brooklyn, and led the grassroots, ultra-feminist Riot Grrrl movement of the early 1990s. From punk musicians to polished socialites, an appreciation for handcrafted, one-of-a-kind wares is a common thread that connects us to our humanity. This work reminds us that our fingers can do so much more than just operate machines. It connects us to our cultures, our ancestors, our neighbors, and even strangers from faraway places, just through placing a single object between our palms.
