This tiny rabbit is created with soft shades of brown and cute button tail. The eyes are full of expression. The artist does a wonderful design of creating a realistic mold. The finished rabbit shows the tiny folds and movement that gives it the look of a real garden rabbit.

This little turtle is so cute. The artist used a wonderful blend of colors to create a realistic looking tiny turtle. This choice from her collection of turtles has adorable eyes. Perfect addition to my dish garden.

Although due to the postal service (not the seller's fault) I did not receive the original bag I had ordered, the seller went above and beyond to correct the problem. She gave me two extra bags in the mail in exchange for the lost one. I highly recommend this kind seller and would buy from her again! The bags are very beautiful and my favorite colors! Thanks again :)
WORK IN PROGRESS IN MY CERAMIC SHOP
My start in craftwork began many years ago when my sister, Dolores Corrado, (who was a gifted artist) and I shared an interest in creating and selling our craftwork. She pursued a career as a graphic artist; I continued as a hobby but learned some of the finer points of artwork by my association with her.
She has since passed on but many of her beautiful pieces of signed artwork previously sold might be recognized - many of a Southwestern nature, American Indian, and Dimensional ArtForm.
Ceramics is just one part of my interest in craftwork. I make my own slip (liquid clay for mold casting) from dry clay body in a 30-gallon mixer. This is a crucial and time-consuming process of weighing and testing for finished quality pieces and problem-free mold casting. The casting and cleaning of greenware (unfired pieces) is the unpleasant part; the hand painting and having the pieces come to life is the most rewarding.
Since this is basically a one person operation, it's necessary for me to separate my projects and work time to allow space and materials for painting, sewing projects, paper crafts, and other, in my ceramic shop and studio work room without conflict. For this reason I do not take custom or special orders but will consider special requests in some cases.
Although I enjoyed meeting the public when doing craft shows, since I joined Etsy in May of 2011, it is a welcome change from the hardships of doing shows. It has been a pleasant experience as a shop owner with Etsy and to be associated with so many talented people.
I welcome you to look thru my shop at the different categories that are available for sale at affordable prices, or just for the entertainment of window shopping.
