Impressions of the South is proud to announce the addition of Ne'Qwa Art Christmas ornaments to their holiday collection. The hand-painted glass pieces are well known for their distinctive beauty and faithfulness to 17th century mouth-blown glass from China.

At Impressions of the South, in North Augusta, SC, workers have been busily preparing for the holiday season by decorating nine trees being displayed throughout the store. They are proud to announce the addition of Ne'Qwa Art Christmas ornaments to this year's offerings.

Ne'Qwa Art is a line of hand-painted glass ornaments made according to the ancient tradition of reverse painting on mouth-blown glass. The Ne'Qwa art form dates back to 17th century China. Each piece is as beautiful as it is rare, making for a unique addition to your Christmas tree.

According to Ne'Qwa Art co-founder and head designer Jim Sexton, legitimate Ne'Qwa products made strictly according to traditional guidelines are hard to come by. They cannot be mass-produced because the process depends on mouth-blown glass.

"Today there are only a few artist groups, living in remote villages throughout China, who possess the skill to create Ne'Qwa Art's contemporary art objects," Sexton says. "By bringing together the popular artwork of internationally known artists with the centuries-old skill of Chinese artisans, Ne'Qwa Art is committed to reviving this ancient art form."

In addition to their Ne'Qwa Art collection, Impressions of the South carries a full line of holiday gift and decoration ideas. Their store is jam-packed with garland in multiple colors, tree ornaments and other Christmas decorations, porcelain statues, etc. For gift giving you'll find gourmet coffees and teas, chocolates, cheeses, custom jewelry, and so much more.

Owners Eva and Jay Watkins invites holiday shoppers to visit Impressions of the South this coming holiday season. For those interested, Eva has also just started a wreath making class that will help participants create a beautiful and personalized Christmas wreath for display in their homes.
