We worked with renowned Texas artist, Kitty Keller and her daughter, Maggie, on designing this exclusive cloisonne ornament just for us...you won't find this ornament anywhere else but here on the Texas Trading Post.
The art of cloisonne is a centuries old process, and one that Kitty specializes in. As we were designing this ornament, we wanted one that was "pure Texas" and one that captured the true spirit of Texas!
...and so it was done...
We tried to capture Texas on all four sides of the ornament. On one side is the Texas State map with oak leaves...moving around is "The Lone Star State" and the Texas Lone Star. As your eyes move to the next side, there is "TEXAS" in gold letters with the Texas State Flag underneath and lastly, cowboy boots, an oil derrick, a Mockingbird and the Texas Bluebonnet round off the ornament. The blue background is reminiscent of our Texas skies. This is, quite simply....Pure Texas!
