Unfortunately, because of my work load, all orders placed after Dec. 1 will not be ready until after the week or so after December 25, 2013.
Custom painted home portrait ceramic ornament. Keepsake handmade from your photo. Personalized with names and year. Exceptional gift for new home owners, for a hostess, or for Christmas, weddings, birthdays, or anniversaries.
******PLEASE FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY********
(1) E-MAIL your jpg image(s) to cathie.carlson [!at] yahoo.com - DO NOT send them to me through Etsy conversations.
(2) Include what you would like written on the back of ornament in the "notes to seller" section when purchasing your ornament. If no personalization is included in the notes to seller, I will leave the back of the ornament blank.
I do not send images of sketches. I will send an image of your keepsake as soon as it has been sketched, painted, fired and is ready to ship.
**Please keep in mind that this ornament is not meant to portray a realistic portrait, but a simplistic rendition of your image**
****Due to the incredible amount of time and work put into each and every ornament I do not feel comfortable offering discounts for multiple orders. Thank you for understanding. *****
Every part of the 3.5 inch ceramic ornament is hand touched by me making each one a unique piece of art. I sketch the custom portrait in pencil then outline the drawing with black glaze. The design is hand painted with non-toxic, lead-free pottery glaze colors. Afterwards, I paint the area around the design in a contrasting color, personalize the back, sign my work, coat the entire ornament with a non-toxic, lead-free glaze then fire it in my kiln.
Home portraits are also available on:

Best etsy purchase ever. Both were gifts and both recipients were speechless. I will always order this as a new home gift for friends.
I just opened this, and burst into tears! It is so beautiful, and so perfect. I am counting down the days until Christmas to give it to my husband. THANK YOU!
