About The Artist

Alaskan artist Cindy Wortman-Ziel has developed her own distinctive style of painting on traditional glass Christmas ornaments. Her designs capture the majesty of the northern night skies, the stunning beauty of coastal islands and waterways, and the wildlife seen there. Each ornament is painted freehand and signed as a hand-painted original.

“I love painting each ornament and watching the magic that happens under my brush. I care about how each ornament turns out, each one uniquely arranged, layer upon layer of blues and greens--ocean, sky, mountains, and trees. I believe that when I’m in the flow, the joyful energy I bring to my work stays in the piece. I hope you feel it.” ~Cindy

About Our Art

Each of my ornaments is a signed, hand-painted original.  I use no stamps or stencils, so every piece is unique in its details.  Each design is painted in a series, so multiples of any pattern are usually available.  I will inscribe your ornament with whatever names, greeting, or personal inscription you desire at no extra charge.

I like to think of them as a "Christmas card in-the-round," a special remembrance to be treasured each Christmas as it hangs on the tree... or to be displayed year round!

These are very lightweight and ship securely and quickly via USPS First Class mail (three or more go via Priority Mail). Check out the gallery for some stunning examples of these beautiful ornaments!
