Spirit Ball Glass Ornament, Jade

Special Price $24.99 Regular Price $48.00
Believed to protect the home, glass spirit ball ornaments were popular house-warming gifts in 18th century England. The jade-colored strands of glass inside each globe are said to attract negative spirits and trap them inside the glass ball to prevent mischief making. Our Washington State artisans masterfully handcraft each blown-glass ornament with ash from the 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens as the secret component. Each spirit ball ornament is made exclusively for Uno Alla Volta, from the hearts and hands of artisans. No two will be exactly alike. Measures 3in. 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.
