Mid century modern metallic turquoise paper star decoration, retro Polish stars, home decor accents handcrafted by Kissa Design. Decorate your dwelling with this 4 INCH Vivid Turquoise Star Urchin ornament, based on the traditional Polish porcupine ball, and handmade using a bright and shiny turquoise paper that sings in color and adds a retro flare to any decor. Use as a vivid addition to a tinsel tree; or place in a bowl on a coffee table as a objet d'art or conversation piece. A unique gift for December birthdays as well.

Star Urchins are my modern interpretation of a Polish folk art decoration, 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 dahlias 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. Great to use for decoration anywhere, in a group for display on a shelf, or hung on a Christmas tree with other special ornaments for big impact, especially in this color!

Each Star Urchin is packaged in a clear box for storage or gift giving and has a loop for hanging. This listing is for one 4-inch ornament. I recommend 3-inch and 4-inch Star Urchins for average-size Christmas trees. Please contact me if you are interested in a different size, quantity or color that you don't see here.
