Each Veiled Witch Ball is uniquely handcrafted. In ambient light the beautiful white veil gently obscures the color structure inside. In sunlight one can see the bright colors that make this ornament so attractive. The inspiration of the artist, the hand of the craftsman, the nature of gravity, and the fire in the kiln, all combine the make spirit of the witch ball.
At 4 inch diameter it is the perfect gift size.
For over two hundred years, the superstition behind Witch Balls has traveled from England to New England. The magic of a Witch Ball is to ward off evil spirits, witch's spells, and ill fortune by capturing them in the hollow interior. As the spirit is mesmerized by the ball's color and reflection, it enters the ball and is caught by it's web-like inside. Our glass Witch Balls are made from recycled glass in the Carpathian Mountains; the land of superstition, old world mystery and storybook folklore.
