Almost Time for Dragonflies

Looking back on the sales last year, one of our best moving product lines was the Dragonfly line. That said, we are proud to introduce our newest piece the Dragonfly Ornament. It will make a great addition to your everyday decor or your Christmas tree.

After many requests for a look behind the scenes, I was able to talk my husband into taking photos as he went through the process. So here is a pictorial of how they are made.

  1. Dragonflies were the theme at my niece's wedding last year and they still catch my eye. They are a symbol of happiness and good luck!

    1. Thank you. The patience really comes in on the drying and cooling time. When you put a glazed piece in the kiln you never know what you'll get out.

    1. Thank you. I wouldn't have thought to do it except someone from the Promo Frenzy Team suggested it.
