4. How are KCIC
Porcelain Ornaments Made?
The process begins with prayer and researching of Scriptures. After the Bible verse is selected, we choose the decorative trim, colors and porcelain shapes, Then, we determine how many to produce and proceed with the process of inscribing and decorating the ornaments. Click here for a brief history of porcelain. See a Catalogue of all KCIC products with links to close-ups.
We fire them ourselves and produce only a limited quantity each year. Every ornament includes a serial number and Certificate of Authenticity. This Christ-centered Christian Christmas ornament is fine quality, collectible, inspirational home decor especially made to display or give as a gift. It glorifies the birth of Jesus Christ and enhances your celebration of a Christmas that begins with Christ - a Christmas with real meaning. You or the person to whom you give it,will cherish it for life. And, every ornament includes a lifetime, free replacement guarantee.
5. How Are KCIC Glass
The idea for and process of creating these unique gold and silver glass ornaments also begins with prayer. We paint each ornament by hand with a total of twelve combined coats of base, color and varnish. They are meant to remain beautiful for a lifetime. There are of course, surface imperfections common to glass ornaments over which we have no control. We added a color-coordinated hanging ribbon for display on a Christmas tree with branches of any thickness. Each glass ornament includes a booklet with the Bible story that is illustrated by the ornament. The text is in some cases a direct quote and in other areas a paraphrase of many several reputable Bible translations. We created a child-friendly version with simplicity and truth for you to share with your loved ones. The glass ornaments are quite fragile and should be handled with care.
Yes and no. Yes, the Oval and Round porcelain ornaments are too heavy for a tree with thin or drooping branches (such as white pine.) That is the reason we added 0rnament Stands for table top display. Many of our customers display their ornaments all year around. (See the Comments from KCIC customers.)
No. The Oval and Round porcelain ornaments look better on a tree with sturdy branches such as a Frazier fir or artificial tree with metal branches.The lighter weight Scalloped porcelain ornament looks wonderful in multiples hanging on any tree. Just be sure you place it on a sturdy branch.
7. Why Do You Personalize
Your Porcelain Ornaments?
It is our prayer that you (or the person you are gifting) will feel the incredible, personal love of God every time the ornament is read with the name.
