I started with my first plate in May 2011. Working over the years to perfect the transferring process. Of a paper image onto a ceramic piece. I make reproductions in miniature of known designs as well as creating my own designs. My pieces have been used by many other artists for their own miniature pieces or to add to works that they sell. With now over 20,000 ceramic pieces made and sold to happy customers all over the world. Carriexx
