Filigree and Ribbon Glass Candy Canes

Virginia’s Original Filigree and Ribbon Glass Holiday Canes

The Candy Cane has had a long history beginning approximately 1670.  Hard sugar sticks were bent into a Shepherds Staff shape and passed out to children attending holiday services.  Around 1900 the Candy Cane received its familiar markings by a candy maker in Indiana. Green, Red and White stripes were added to represent Hope, Love and Purity. In modern times the Candy Cane continues to change its stripes and colors, delighting old and young alike, and carrying the constant message of the Good Shepherd.

Virginia Wilson Toccalino brings you lovely Filigree and Ribbon Glass Holiday Canes. Each filigree, lace-like cane is composed of groups of glass rods that involve a process of fusing, layering  pulling and twisting the glass. This process is done personally by Virginia and her husband Tony Toccalino at the furnace while working in their glass studio.  The ribbon glass Holiday Canes are selected pieces of flattened colored glass embedded in the crystal, pulled and twisted to create swirling glass ribbons within.

Colors and dimensions may vary slightly.  Thank you for supporting handmade in Canada items! The Holiday Canes come as a gift boxed set of 3 with an artists’ card. Prices are $ USD.
