When it comes to the holidays, creating traditions is the best way to be creative. Traditions are certainly steeped in history, but every family has their own unique take on it, making it all the more special and beautiful.
At Delphi Glass, we introduced our iconic series of Holiday Village Molds back in 2015. We modeled them after the stunning and charming town of Harbor Springs, Michigan, a very historic place with quaint architecture that can still be seen in the quiet streets there. It makes for the perfect setting of a Christmas Village that you can create from cast glass.
Even though it comes as a mold, you can customize it the way you want it. The little details can have your own exclusive touch to them. Choose the colors you like and even try different finishes in the same mold. You can also give it a snowy look so it has that winter wonderland-feeling to it. We took care to design all the little homey touches for each mold from cobblestones to intricate old-fashioned windows so you can create a classic look that endures for all of time.
These Holiday Village Molds are made from the highest quality ceramic so that they can endure many firings. They also have holes to make it easy to embed wiring for easier assembly.
We recommend you coat your molds with casting primer prior to using them. Use small, tightly-rolled strips of fiber paper into the pre-drilled holes prior to filling your mold with frit, so that you can join the structures to their bases without drilling. Add our self-adhesive rubber feet to protect wood surfaces when displaying your beautiful Christmas village.
You can use these Holiday Village Molds to create a piece for your mantle or shelf for the holidays, or make it as a gift for someone to cherish and treasure forever. We add new designs to the collection every year so you can expand and customize your village. Why not order them now so you can start firing up something beautiful just in time for the holidays? That will be one less gift you’ll have to brave the malls for. Or these Holiday Village Molds could be the best gift to give to your favorite glass artist! Delphi Glass wishes you a very creative holiday season!
