The oddball ornaments have always been a favorite on my Christmas trees. Back in the day when my dad did duty on a tree farm in Windsor, CT (duty on this farm included hanging out in a heated lodge, smoking cigars and shooting the shit, while helping young families and couple cut down their own firs), I used to use the reserve tags on our trees yearly. The tree looked like it was purchased at a discount sale about four years.
Artinfo calls Peter Eudenbach’s “Chimera” ornament “creepy” and “a little quirky” with its cast pewter blue jay feet attached by nuts on the bottom of the hand blown glass bulb. We think it looks normal compared to our cheap tree tags. Well done, Mr. Eudenbach.
