For over two hundred years, the superstition behind Witch Balls has traveled from England to New England. The magic of a Witch Ball is to ward off evil spirits, witch’s spells, and ill fortune by capturing them in the hollow interior. As the spirit is mesmerized by the ball’s color and reflection, it enters the ball and is caught by it’s weblike inside.
Our glass Witch Balls are made from recycled glass in the Carpathian Mountains; the land of superstition, old world mystery and storybook folklore. As the ball is molten hot, the glass is formed, the ball is rolled into colored glass granules to provide the design. With this process each of our Witch Balls are uniquely handcrafted and no two are alike. Let the magic of our Witch Balls decorate your home.
