When the festive season is just around the corner, it’s the time you get started getting out your decorations for your home. Of course, everyone has a huge collection of ornaments left over from last year and the year before, and a lot of the fun is reminiscing while getting those ornaments and other items out. It’s a time of year when you can enjoy thinking back on the memories that make the specific holiday memorable for you.
jim shore diorama
Jim Shore is one of America’s foremost folk artists and his signature pieces have become popular all over the world. He creates beautiful vintage pieces that are made from stone resine, which are hand painted in vibrant, eye popping colors.
A Jim Shore Diorama is something that can be for just the Christmas holidays, but Jim Shore’s Heartwood Creek collectibles also include dioramas for year round decorating. These three-dimensional works of art depict scenes in some very unusual manners. Jim Shore has two Bounty or Harvest (Thanksgiving or fall) dioramas. One of the scenes is nestled inside of a cornucopia, while the other can be found inside of a pumpkin!
Jim Shore’s diorama line also includes scenes nestled inside of lighthouse, and even a gnome!
During the Christmas holidays, there are several dioramas that have the signature Heartwood Creek feel. There is one with an entire family with Santa Claus and a Christmas tree inside the ornament. We also loved the Star tree topper which contains an entire Nativity scene on the inside of the star. Almost all of Shore’s Christmas ornaments will easily turn into heirloom pieces. The pieces are covered with hand painted traditional American quilting patterns and flat folk art designs and this makes them one-of-a-kind.
A Jim Shore diorama is one of the cutest gifts you can give to anyone. It does not matter if you are an adult or a child, they are beautiful and the basis for many day dreams and fantasies when the world is overwhelming. They provide a little escape for just a few minutes out of each day as little scenes come to life in the mind of children and adults. You can view tiny towns with life moving in silent happiness or choose from holiday scenes of fall, Christmas and other themes to bring a smile.
These Jim Shore’s three-dimensional scale models of scenes are very affordable and will increase in value as time goes by. But they will be a value to anyone lucky enough to own one for their very own.
