The origin of the Polish Star was in the folk tradition of making Christmas ornaments with leftover paper with the star representing the star over Bethlehem.
These days each 4in ornament is handmade by Hull Street Studio in Ellicott City, Maryland. Every spiky "porcupine" ball has 72 individually formed points hand rolled from recycled paper, books or maps with a ribbon loop for hanging.
Polish Star ornaments are beautiful in their simplicity and timeless design. A vintage style ornament for modern times.
Book lovers rejoice, the artist rescues every book she uses. Novel art for years of enjoyment.
Available in Christmas colored paper, maps, sheet music and Shakespeare book pages.
