Bring the sunshine in with an original bouquet of Three 2-INCH Star Urchin flowers in Mustard, a shade of vivid yellow paper that reminds me of Rudbeckia (black-eyed Susan) flowers. This paper is backed by a lovely aubergine, which adds very subtly to the depth of color. Each spiky sphere is attached atop a 9-inch wooden stem that I've lightly stained a complementary walnut color, to create a floral form reminiscent of craspedia or globe thistles. Handmade Polish Star Ornaments by Kissa Design, reinterpreted for the modern home, freshly crafted in my studio garden. I have a very limited supply of this paper, so I'm only offering this color in this size.

Star Urchins are based on the traditional Polish folk art decoration often called a porcupine ball, a style of ornament making that dates back beyond a hundred years. To me, they look like stars or sea urchins, so I call them Star Urchins, but their spiky form has been likened to seed pods and fireworks, too.

I make each Star Urchin completely by hand, and each of mine has 80 hand-formed points. My family has been making them for over half a century and my many years of practice produces a very neat ornament. They look delicate and celestial, take patience and a little while to make. Stand in a vase or flower frog for an eye-catching modern floral display perfectly at home in decor ranging from country to modern.

Stemmed Star Urchins are currently available in a variety of colors, in sizes 2-inch (on 9-inch stems), 3-inch (on 10-inch stems), and 4-inch (on 12-inch stems); stems are permanently attached. Please use the conversation feature ("convo" me) if you are interested in a different size, quantity or color that you don't see here and I will create a custom listing for you. This listing is for a set of three. Vase not included.
