About

Nature Inspires Me Everyday!

I have been a nature lover for as long as I can remember. Being outside as a young child, I was continually fascinated by butterflies, flowers, birds and the animals in the garden. I spent lots of time drawing, painting and writing stories about my animal friends! All these years later, not much has changed. I love living in an area that I can experience the beauty of the four seasons.

Growing up with two artistic parents, I was encouraged to explore the world of art. When my children were in school, I began to refresh my skills, and took classes in painting, pottery, decoupage and graphic design. My business started years ago, hosting my own holiday craft show. Each room of my house filled with my handcrafted Christmas creations made of wood, glass, ceramic and metal. With the encouragement of my family and friends, I decided to expand my audience, and bring my seasonal home and garden décor to Etsy. It started with a clay pot, thus the name, Ellen's Clay Creations, but I enjoy working with a variety of materials. Every item is crafted by my hands, in my heart and with a deep love of nature, often using a mixed media approach.

I work from a small studio nestled in my garden, allowing me to get up close with nature. My bird houses, feeders, flower pots and painted bird finials, are part of my own backyard décor, and I love watching them in use! My holiday porcelain ornaments, adorn my family Christmas tree. In addition to Etsy, I sell my work to local bird, gift and garden shops. When I am not creating home and garden decor, I can usually be found outside taking photographs, or digging in the dirt!

*Finished items are shipped out between 3-5 business days from the date of cleared payment, However, If the item is listed as "made to order" or a "custom order," the "Scheduled to Ship Date" will apply! Please check the listing prior to purchase and pay attention to the scheduled shipping date listed, before checking out. (Most of the time I get items out sooner.) Please be aware of this when ordering in time for special events. I work independently, and I create and ship each item with great care and attention to detail.
