Did you stare very long at this beautiful thing?
They say you learn something every day.
And sometimes, lots of people know all about it already. But you don’t.
So, this is a Witch Ball – something that has been around for a couple hundred years or more. But, it’s new to me.
I LOVE art with a story, and this is a humdinger.
Supposedly, a witch or any other bearer of less than wonderful energy, will be so enthralled by the beauty of this glass orb (usually about 6-7 inches in diameter) that she will get trapped by the glass threads within, and be rendered harmless.
So, the Witch Ball will protect your home from evil.
I like that.
When I saw photos of the beautiful Witch Balls hand blown by glass artist Virgil Jones of North Carolina, I had to have them for the gallery.
In real life, they are even more beautiful, and I was enthralled when they arrived.
“This is amazing,” I said to Mark, I can’t stop looking at this Witch Ball,”
“Well, I guess it’s working then,” he said.
Mark treads very close to the edge sometimes.
Have you ever heard of Witch Balls?
