Christmas Pyramids are what the artisans at Richard Glässer studios are most famous for and the folk art most associated with the Ore Mountains where their studio is located. The Pyramid shape is based on a simple engine called a "Whim" that was used in the region's mines to move ore to the surface. Now the Pyramid is a colourful, animated part of Holiday decor in both traditional and modern settings.

The rising heat of the tea lites pushes the vanes on the impeller wheel causing the Pyramid to rotate creating light and shadow - even without being lit the Pyramid is a stately centrepiece. Each little figure on the Pyramid deck or decks is hand turned and hand painted.

This delightful Pyramid displays children cross country skiing in the winter time. Round and round they go on their skis!
