The hand-painted Birch Mason Jar is a New England twist on the traditional canning jar that has been a fixture in American homes since 1858. This standard 32 ounce jar stands 7 inches tall.
The artist combines the translucent, papery effects of birch bark with its more noticeable white and black accents.
A white birch tree standing tall and picturesque is the epitome of the Maine woods. This design was originally created at the request of a friend for her upcoming wedding. Her fiancé, an artist, designed their wedding invitations - a pen and ink drawing of a birch tree with their initials carved into it next to a lake. They are both very outdoorsy!
As the wedding plans progressed, she asked me to make their toasting flutes to coordinate with their invitations and nature theme of the wedding. While honored by the request, it was something I had not tried before. Through trial and error, I created a multi-layered birch design with a gold heart "carved" into the glass with their initials.
They loved them! The order increased to include flutes for the wedding party as well as ornaments for their parents to commemorate the event.
Glass Paradox’s wedding design was born! I am amazed at the number of weddings across New England every year that include Birch in their special day.
