This handmade curved glass reindeer reflection is the perfect Christmas gift from Ireland and helps in connecting friends and families scattered across the World under the same Christmas sky. Each glass reflection is designed and handmade by Irish designer Jacinta Ryan in her garden studio in Cork. These items are bought all year round so one has them at hand for Christmas each year.
Glass powder is sprinkled between two layers of glass which goes into the kiln overnight. On the following day it is returned to the kiln to take the curved shape. The curved glass design hints at the magic and twinkle of the Christmas night sky with Santa casting his magic above the reindeers as they fly across the world.
These curved glass pieces come in a choice of three colours/themes: predominately reds, the dark sky, or paler twilight colours - you need to select your choice above.
Each piece is unique, a once off therefore there will always be variations. Colours and every image are subtly different and dimensions may vary slightly. Sometimes the images of Santa and his reindeers are clear, sometimes not. Not everyone can see Santa anyway!
Although a small glass tile is included to protect your surfaces. Candles or Tea lights are NOT included - please be careful when lighting candles and don't leave unattended.
Inspired by the Designer's childhood memories and "The Night Before Christmas", this Reindeer Glass can sit beautifully on any mantelpiece, on your Christmas table or on a window sill. You can accentuate the colours and images of this handmade glass piece by placing a candle, tealight or fairy lights behind it.

Delivery: All orders are shipped via either An Post or Courier services. Price is according to weight. Given the fragility of glass and the weight of these bowls, orders of more than two bowls should be made as a separate order. Parcels in Ireland are typically delivered within 2-3 working days of shipping. Europe can be up to a week. Christmas Post can be slower.
Gift Card Message: When purchased as a gift, Jacinta can include a personalised message from you, just include in the text box above.
Lead time for orders. Most of the producer's glass takes about three days to make as it requires two overnight firings in the kiln. While she will try to keep stock, it may take up to 6 days before dispatch. However, during busy times like Christmas it can be up to two weeks.
Ordering multiple items: As each item needs to be packaged separately, you will need to order each item individually as they can't be shipped in the one package.
