Virginia and Tony lovingly and carefully create the Blown Glass Friendship Balls at their glassblowing studio in Halton Hills, On. Handblown glass balls are one of Virginia’s favourite things to make. Her Friendship balls are highly collectible and in many private and public collections throughout the world.
These beautiful, decorative Blown Glass Friendship Balls can be positioned on any surface. They look particularly beautiful when placed somewhere where they can catch the light to really show off their wonderful patterns and colours.
These beautiful handblown swirled hand blown glass balls are also known as Fairy Balls, Wishing Balls or Christmas Balls. These art glass balls represents a circle with no end, like the friendship it symbolizes. Superstition says the bright colours and reflective qualities ward off evil spirits. They make a wonderful gift for that special person in your world. They can be used year round in the window, as Christmas Balls in the winter and they can also be hung outside as a colourful accent in your garden. No two balls are the same, the balls you get will be slightly different from the ones pictured.
“The offering of a Friendship Ball is an old tradition symbolising a deep friendship between two people. The ball is round symbolizing no beginning, no end, thus, it keeps us together like our circle of friends.
It is ageless and timeless like true friends. Sitting in the sunlight, it sparkles the way a good friend does. The colours dance across the surface of the ball enhancing one another just like different personalities enhance each other. The glass balls are hand blown and each is unique representing how no two friends are alike.
