〈10-24/12〉 Event - Michael Haberland: Christbaumschmuck

This festive season, for the first time in three years, we’re delighted to present a showcase of glass Christmas ornaments from Lauscha, Germany.

Glass pens are one of the writing tools on offer at Kakimori. The first glass pen we stocked was made by Motoko Fujita of glass studio Werkstatt Tetohi, and later when we created our original glass pen, we invited Fujita to develop the design for us.

Before establishing Workstatt Tetohi, Fujita trained in the village of Lauscha in former East Germany. The birthplace of glass Christmas baubles, Lauscha is renowned worldwide for its centuries-old craft and tradition and for the distinctive beauty of its glass.

This year’s event presents the work of Michael Haberland, a Lauscha artisan who makes hand-blown Christmas ornaments using rare moulds passed down from his grandfather.

Each ornament is an exquisite object that can be equally admired on its own or as part of a Christmas tree decoration. The ornaments make a wonderful collection that one can add to year after year.

Join us and be mesmerised by the magic and nostalgia of an East German Christmas.
