Jim Ptacek's photography is most often focused on inner city architecture. In this ornament, taken from a collage of photographs called ??North Coast Lights?, Jim has made it the outskirts of the city and to the Southern shore of Lake Erie. Along the edge of the lake are a plethora of lighthouses, but Jim has brought us the most architecturally wonderful here. Featured lighthouses in this Cleveland classic includes Lorain, Fairport, Marblehead, Cleveland, Huron and Fairport Marine Museum.
Wendell August's own Master Die Engraver Dave Bruck has taken this Ptacek's masterpiece, and forever frozen it in steel die so that we can bring it to you at part of our 2011 Artist Series Ornaments. Each one of these ornaments has been handmade, one-by-one, so that quality and uniqueness of each piece is ensured. When you order your North Coast Lights ornament we'll send it to you in a gift box that echoes the textures of our hand-hammered craftsmanship. It will impress the recipient, as well as provide safe storage until it adorns your tree again next year. This ornament is dated on the back with its introduction date of 2012.
Available in Bronze and Aluminum
