These are a great add on to any gift, or makes a special gift all on its own! The thing I really love about these is how you can hang them all year round if you want, or choose to save them for the tree! :D

Dragonfly is such a liminal creature, dancing between the worlds of land, water and air. It's no wonder that in the Celtic tradition, they're considered the keeper of the gates between the worlds.

About the Artist
Brick Pond Handworks is one of the Massachusetts potteries that continue the tradition of the original Dedham Pottery. Mary W. DeCaprio, a classically trained artist with degrees from Boston University (MFA) and the Kansas City Art Institute (BFA), founded Brick Pond Handworks in 1988. She has taken Dedham Pottery in a new direction by making Christmas ornaments that reflect her own creativity and interests. Nature, history, personal experience and pure imagination provide the inspiration for each design.
Each Brick Pond Handworks creation is made entirely by hand. Slight variation in design and color add character and reflect their unique hand crafted origin. Low-fired earthenware clay is first rolled into a slab from which each design is hand cut. Once cured, each piece is wiped by hand to smooth any rough edges and then hand-painted ensuring special attention to detail. The artist signs each piece guaranteeing its authenticity. The pottery is then bisque fired and glazed. Each ornament is hand finished and decorated with a satin ribbon and gift tag.
