New Jersey Porcelain Star

Delicate Hooven and Hooven Ornament with Organza Ribbon


Hooven & Hooven Handmade Fine Porcelain for over 30 years.

This Porcelain ornament is created and hand-crafted by the mother and daughter team Coille and Molly Hooven. The clay is first rolled into a thin, flat slab, then each ornament is individually cut out and embossed. The drying process alone takes several days and many careful steps; each one perfectly timed. Then the porcelain is fired to 2400°F, hotter than any other clay. This gives the ornament a translucent affect, just one of its finer qualities. Fourteen steps take place before this piece is packaged for its journey to you. Hanging this ornament in a window allows light to pass through its surface, creating a magnificent display of its intricate design.

The Star measures approximately 3" x 3", is accented with a soft white organza ribbon and comes in a kraft paper box.
