Through a small opening in each glass ornament, the artist uses delicate brush strokes to hand-paint on the inside of mouth-blown glass. From outlining to shading to color application, all work is painstakingly done in freehand. This reverse-painting art form flourished during the 17th century however today there are only a few artist groups who possess the skill to create these exquisitely beautiful glass ornaments.
According to Ne’Qwa Art’s co-founder and head designer Jim Sexton, “Today there are only a few artist groups, living in remote villages throughout China, who possess the skill to create Ne’Qwa Art’s contemporary art objects. By bringing together the popular artwork of internationally known artists with the centuries-old skill of Chinese artisans, Ne’Qwa Art is committed to reviving this ancient art form.”
