The Story of the Glass Witch Ball

Originating in England during the 1700's, witch balls feature intriguing thin glass strands randomly weaving down the interior. The blown glass balls were hung near a window or door for spiritual protection. It was believed evil near the home was enticed by the glass ball (like a moth to a flame) and would find itself forever snared inside the strands, leaving the home safe from the witch spells and curses. This practice soon gained popularity with folks in the coastal United States and other European countries, where the balls were used to ward off all types of spirits. In modern times, the blown glass balls are still admired, providing artistry to your home, window, or porch alongside old-fashioned folklore... and, just maybe, a bit of insurance from unknown evils.

Artist-crafted in North Carolina, the glass witch balls are hand-blown using traditional techniques, melting ingredients to molten temperatures and forming the shape upon the end of a blowpipe. Each ball measures approximately 4.5" to 5" wide and 6 inches high (with the integrated loop hanger).

Available in 4 colors, each with a slightly iridescent, mother-of-pearl luster. Choose from Cherry Blossom (all pink), Cloud (light blue and light grey with amber accents), Prairie (grassy green with multicolor accents), or Hibiscus (plum, pink, and blue mix)

Please note: As each witch ball is individually made by hand, the color, shape, and size will vary slightly. Each is a one-of-a-kind creation. The colors are on the bottom portion of the ball, with clear irridized on the top portion to reveal the inner strands.
