It’s exciting to see one’s dreams become reality. That’s the case for Eric Cortina, visual director for Roger’s Gardens in Corona del Mar, California.
Surrounded by holiday ornaments throughout the year as well as traveling to Europe in conjunction with his career, Eric developed an appreciation for glass ornaments.
Celebrate365 first met Eric in 2003 in an interview in the Early Fall issue. He had just 14 designs. Now, Eric is celebrating his tenth anniversary as an ornament designer.
The innovations just keep coming. Eric continues to think outside the box. He is not afraid to design over-sized ornaments that can stand along as accents in the home. He does not hesitate to create ornaments that are formed from multiple molds and then assembled into the finished design.
Compared to other ornament companies, Eric still maintains a very small, highly curated collection and he exhibits his ornament designs and home décor at AmericasMart, Building 1, Floor 20.
For most collectors, it’s not that easy to find an Eric Cortina ornament locally. Neiman Marcus and Horchow carry the line nationally. Premiere level accounts are located in California and New York and internationally in England.
To honor Eric’s Tenth Anniversary, Celebrate365.com is offering a diverse selection of ornaments from his ten years of design.
