Nov. 24, 2016 – West Bend, WI – Husar’s House of Fine Diamonds has unveiled a new glass ornament for the holidays. Over the past seven years the Husars have been highlighting downtown West Bend with Norman-Rockwell flair.
The first year the ornament featured the Husar building with the West Bend Theatre marquee in the background.
This year the ornament features the Gehl Company building.
Husar’s President Mike Husar said his dad, Marvin Husar, was the one who came up with the idea of featuring significant buildings or things in the community as the ongoing theme for the annual ornament.
The ornaments are unique as they are painting using a Chinese form of age-old art called Li Bien, which means “inside.”
“The artist took the original drawing of our building and then, using a 90- degree angle brush, hand-painted the picture through a tiny opening in the top of the glass,” said Mike Husar. “People can’t believe it and if you look, every ornament is just a little different.”
The ornaments will be for sale at Husar’s House of Fine Diamonds.
The Husar’s said there are a couple ornaments from years past – but only a limited number remain available.
