The Meisenthal International Glass Art Center: a hub of excellence
The Meisenthal International Glass Art Center (CIAV) is based in Meisenthal, a small town in the Moselle region. Its glassmakers keep the age-old expertise of manufacturing Christmas baubles alive. Each bauble from the workshop is entirely hand-made!
Far from only reproducing traditional styles, CIAV is firmly in step with the times, calling on the talents of a new designer each year.
Tradition has it that the new Christmas bauble for the year is revealed to the public every year in November. A vintage bauble that is added to the Meisenthal collection's contemporary line... and decorates many Alsatians' Christmas tree!
Arti: Meisenthal's Christmas bauble for 2018
In 2018, the Christmas bauble was christened Arti. Arti for artichoke as this was the vegetable that inspired its designer Nathalie Nierengarten, the granddaughter of a glassmaker and Meisenthal native.
