Grandpa’s Christmas Ornament

Another Studio Class image to share: This is an ornament my Grandpa Rohr made a long time ago. I had to really beg for my mom to let me have it for my own tree. Since Grandpa passed away in 1978, it is likely over 50 years old. He made a number of these Christmas Ornaments. He inspired me, and my kids when they were young, to make our own Christmas Ornaments. We did use a couple of “kits” but mostly, I collected “satin” Christmas balls, lots of ribbon, sequins, sharp thin pins, and many more supplies. I still have supplies left, just in case I want to get creative. I don’t put all of them in the tree every year. Some are less robust than others, and I don’t want them to fall apart.

So please enjoy the work of the master and a collage of the work of his apprentices!
