Inspired by Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker, the turned wooden ornaments in the 2018 collection are hand painted with designs developed from specific movements of the musical score.
Each ornament is numbered, one of a kind, and made by hand.
Crafted from a variety of hardwood species, the wood was gathered--collected from found branches, logs cut for firewood, and discarded scraps.
Transformed through the vision and hands of an experienced woodworker, and then delicately painted by an artist’s brush to enhance the characteristics of each ornament, the unassuming blocks of wood have become items fit to take lasting places in any heirloom ornament collection. Whether you choose a favorite or a group of several, the ornaments complement each other and will be a striking addition to any Christmas tree.
