These jumbo ornaments are original Kelsey Murphy pieces and were a collaboration between WV glass artisan Ron Hinkle and renowned WV cameo artist Kelsey Murphy. They are each extremely unique in their design. Hinkle blew the Burmese glass ornament and then sent it to Murphy who carved it at Studios of Heaven near Huntington, WV. Only one of each is available for sale.
The more traditional ornament has the carved image of a couple lovingly facing each other behind an open window on a snowy winter’s eve. Two carved Christmas trees surround the window. On the opposite side, a carved wreath is surrounded by swirling snowflakes glistening with gold.
The extraordinary gecko ornament has two geckos carved on it. Why should geckos be used to embellish a Christmas ornament with such class? Geckos, according to tradition, symbolize rebirth, good fortune, self-protection. The geckos here are almost hidden, camouflaged by the green leaves surrounding them.
