Sugar Glider Ornament 2009

The theme for the 2009 Glider Gossip ornament is "Daydreamer". It is laser etched and cut from a smooth alder wood panel with a horizontal grain. Each is unique as the natural grain and other variations affect the individual output.

We learned a lot from making the 2008 ornament and we got this one right the first try. The textured artwork appears to change slightly as it responds to varying light conditions and shadow play. The ornament is just under 4" round and is suitable for displaying on a small photo stand or hanging from the ribbon which is included in the box. Each ornament is packaged in a cotton filled silver foil gift box and will be shipped first class inside of a bubble padded mailer.

The art this year was donated by our very own DRY3210, Daniel, in the form of a charcoal sketch he did based on a photograph he took of a glider jumping off of a friend's arm.
I was looking to work the concept of a sugar glider having a day dream, and Daniel's piece fit the bill. What we have in the final product is a sugar glider gliding effortlessly over a neverending forest in a daydream.

This ornament has the option for "DATE ONLY" if you do not wish to have "" inscribed on it.
