This elegant glass ornament was hand-painted by a skilled artist using special narrow brushes and pointed sticks. The painting process begins with the careful creation of an outline of the image. The artist then begins the more difficult step of slowly filling in the colors. The entire hand-painted process requires several days and the result is a beautiful and unique ornament. This technique is known as reverse glass painting and is an art form found throughout Asia. Ornament features an autumn scene of Miller Library on one side, and Colby and Est. 1813 on the other.
