The quiet forest holds its secrets, but you might hear them whispered in the crisp winter air. The Winter Buck Lantern captures the magic of the woods, for you to bring into your home.
Measuring approximately 6″ x 6″ by 11″ in height, the Winter Buck Lantern is a perfect size to enjoy for indoor home decor. It is a delightful choice to display as a tabletop centrepiece. With each side a unique detailed design, the sides can be viewed from any angle.
Alternatively, you might display the lantern on the floor as an accent piece, or as outdoor decor on the patio or step to welcome winter guests.
How it’s made:
We create the Winter Buck Lantern in multiple steps. First, we create the buck design and expose the silk screen to print the buck. After we cut and polish the glass to size, we print the buck using glass enamels. Once the enamel dries, we apply the layer of glass powder for snow and arrange the birch trees. Using glass frits, we carefully place the snowflakes around the design.
Once all of the pieces are arranged, we kiln fire the individual panels of the fused glass lantern. During the firing process, the glass heats and the design elements fuse to the clear glass background. We fire glass to a temperature to ensure a textured finish, allowing the depth to the forest design.
While the glass fires, we anneal it to strengthen the glass for durability. You can be sure to enjoy your lantern decor for many years to come.
The Winter Buck design is available as a standup for alternate option of this sweet design. See the full collection of wintry designs in the Winter Solstice Collection.
