We create every blown glass ornament here at the Robbins Ranch in Stanley, NM. Each one is handmade, one piece at a time. We have a very colorful array of choices that we keep in stock. The smaller orbs and hot air balloons we make thinner and lighter, to hang on the holiday tree or in a window. Our larger glass balls are made thicker so you can hang them outside. We made these very durable to be stacked in a large bowl, or you can even float them in a pond or fountain.
