My name is Denise Ferragamo and I make hand built clay sculpture and vessels, illustrations and hand made dolls.
I hand sculpt all my original clay sculptures using no molds of any kind. With traditional hand-building techniques I form, cut, roll, sculpt, carve and paddle my ceramic creations until they speak to me, and then fired in my home studio kiln at least twice to over 2000 degrees. Each piece is made with love and and is truly one of a kind.

My influences; European fairytales, legends, folklore and myths. Popular cultural icons such as Tim Burton, Neil Gaiman's American Gods, and classic Stephen King. I'm also a bit of a geek who enjoys movies, tv…

I'm a self taught artist - meaning I didn't attend art school- but honestly, I think that's given me the freedom to do anything and try everything.

I'm a bit of a magpie. My attention can be easily captured by the latest shiny idea and I love to try new crafts. I always come back to my favorite things; clay and illustration. I always say I need to focus more, but that would not be me, I guess. :)
