Holiday Gift Giving Guide–Hand Blown Glass Ornaments from Made in Washington (Review)



Hand Blown Holiday Red Glass Ornament with FREE Green Velvet Keepsake Box


Created at the Glass Eye Studio in Seattle, Washington

  • Each Glass Eye Studio blown glass ornament is an individual work of art, handmade by artisans skillfully working molten glass into festive keepsakes.
  • All ornaments come with an artist card, celebrating Glass Eye Studio's hand crafted artisan approach.


  • All Glass Eye ornaments include ash from the eruption of Mount St. Helens in 1980.
  • Approximately 3" round.

My Thoughts:

What a beautiful glass ornament this is, from Made in Washington.  My jaw dropped as I opened the green velvet keepsake box and saw this hand blown ornament.  I couldn’t get over the swirled colors that were present in this ornament, including the festive shades of red and green immersed throughout this lovely keepsake ornament. 

For years, I have been collecting ornaments that I hoped to one day pass down to my children.  And, now that I have 2 girls, I am on the lookout more than ever for ornaments that will not only stand out on a tree, but that will also act as a keepsake that can be treasured by my daughter’s for years to come during the holiday, as well as all year-round.  This ornament doesn’t’ have to be put away after Christmas.  Instead, buy a stand like the one shown below and display this piece of art all year round. 


It will definitely be a conversation starter, and those that see it up close will want to know where you got it, so that they can buy one for themselves. 

The other day, I had a few friends over and they saw this beautiful ornament adorning my tree.  Out of all the ornaments, this one caught their eye.  They couldn’t stop talking about how gorgeous it was, and how they loved the swirled effect.  By the time I turned on my computer to show them the Made in Washington website where this and other products could be bought, the Hand Blown Holiday Red Glass Ornament was sold out.  But, don’t fret – there are other beautiful ornaments available, including the ones below.  Each retails for only $24.99 and comes in a green velvet keepsake box.


Now that have this ornament, I will definitely be adding more Made In Washington hand blown ornaments in years to come, to my collection.  And, now I have a great gift idea for other holidays like Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, etc. that I can share this beauty of these pieces of art with family and friends.

Disclosure:  I was sent a sample from the vendor in order to write up an honest review.  The views above are mine and mine alone.
