Polish Star folk art Christmas ornament in red with white polka dots. Decorate your dwelling with this 4-INCH Abstract White Polka Dot Star Urchin ornament, based on the traditional Polish porcupine ball, and handmade using a beautiful red paper with a random white polka dot pattern that becomes more abstract when formed into an ornament. The resulting pattern reminds me of confetti and the glass mushroom ornaments from my childhood. Festive and cheery, this ornament would be a beautiful addition to any Christmas tree, a lively decorative statement on the mantel, and makes a nice host/hostess gift, too. Limited edition.

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 as a decoration anywhere you want to add an interesting conversation piece, or hang them on a Christmas tree as a charming addition to your other special ornaments.

Each Star Urchin is packaged in a clear box for storage or gift giving and has a loop for hanging.

I recommend 3-inch and 4-inch Star Urchins for average-size Christmas trees. Please contact ("convo") me if you are interested in a different size, quantity or color that you don't see listed here.
