This Christmas ornament that features a family of three is the perfect gift for those with one child! This also makes a great gift for someone who collects ornaments each year that represent important milestones in their life. The ornament comes ready to hang with a metal hook. It would look great hanging on the Christmas tree or displayed on an ornament hanger all year round. The aluminum finish is great for the couple celebrating their 10 year wedding anniversary! Copper is perfect for those celebrating their 7th anniversary and bronze is the traditional choice for an 8th anniversary!
HOW I MADE IT: I sculpted the original design out of clay. Then I made a mold of the original sculptured ornament. I use real aluminum metal powder mixed with resin to create the ornament casting. I finish the ornament by waxing and polishing it. Because it is cold-casted, the ornament is lighter than a solid metal piece which makes it ideal for hanging on a tree.
ABOUT MY DESIGNS: I create Family Christmas Ornaments, Anniversary Plaques and Sculptures all inspired by life, love, and mostly family! One key feature of my family designs is all the figures are connected and become one. I was greatly inspired by the idea of when couple gets married, two become one. When I began to add children to my designs I continued the theme of connectedness by creating the children around the parents all emerging together.
This family of four Christmas ornament is about 5" long. Because each Christmas ornament is handmade, there may be slight variations compared to the one photographed.
