Sweet 'n Feminine Shabby Cottage Chic Clay Flower Sculptures~Vintage Decor~Art, Craft and Flower Supplies

Hello and welcome to afloralaffair where you will find one-of-a-kind, original, uniquely-handmade clay flower sculptures for wall and table decor made from artist clay. If you love soft, feminine, sweet and romantic floral home decor, you're in the right place. At afloralaffair you will also find lovely items from my own personal vintage collection, as well as my original artwork and art, craft and flower supplies.

The technique I developed to create the sculptures is quite a lengthy process, but I feel their beauty makes it all worthwhile. I specialize in decorative home accents featuring flowers, fruit, birds, butterflies, dragonflies, animals and other things one might find in a garden since these are things I hold dear to my heart.

My European-style sculptures have the look and feel of porcelain bisque. Once a piece has cured, it is hand painted in delicate harmonizing tones and signed. My sculptures are fabulous conversation pieces and marvelous for gift giving. My artwork may be found throughout the United States, Canada, Europe and Australia and is showcased in several Florida gift shops.

From 1987 to 2009, I enjoyed exhibiting my award-winning paintings and clay flower sculptures at art shows in Florida where I was blessed with numerous loyal patron/friends. I am no longer able to exhibit at the shows and will miss seeing the joy on the faces of those who would find an item they loved and couldn't live without. However, Etsy is a fabulous marketplace showcasing marvelous handmade arts, crafts and vintage items where I have been meeting so many lovely people.

I hope you enjoy visiting my shop and return often to view my newly-listed items. I am always available to answer any questions you may have or to discuss having a custom piece made just for you.

Have a beautiful day and please remember to smell the flowers along the way :)

I do my best to make note of any defects; however, at times some minor defects might escape my eye or seem to be irrelevant to the overall beauty of an item; and since beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, my vintage, handmade and supply items are sold “As Is” and are not returnable.

Any and all shipping expenses in connection with returning an item to afloralaffair will be borne solely by the buyer. Deducted from the refund will be a $6.00 restocking fee, the original USPS shipping costs to the buyer plus handling costs, package fees and Etsy transaction and processing fees in connection with the order.

~♥~ PACKING
All items are packed with the greatest of care adhering to USPS guidelines.

Items may be shipped in Priority Mail boxes, recycled boxes or bubble mailers.

If a USPS Priority Mail box is deemed to be an improper size to safely pack an item, a recycled box will be used.

New or clean recycled items such as newspaper, plastic bags, styrofoam, packing peanuts or air bags may be used for cushioning items.

~♥~ CONDITION OF ITEMS

HANDMADE ITEMS - At the time of sale and packing, all of my handmade creations will be in perfect condition unless otherwise stated in the item listing.

VINTAGE ITEMS - The condition of items will be given in each listing to the best of my ability, however, please keep in mind that vintage items are at least 20 years old and some pieces have had quite a bit of handling resulting in some wear and tear. Many items are not in perfect condition, but rather have maintained their vintage charm. Items may also have manufacturing flaws.

I do my best to make note of any defects; however, at times some minor defects might escape my eye or seem to be irrelevant to the overall beauty of the item; and since beauty is in the eye of the beholder, my items are sold “As Is” and are not returnable. Again, please ask any questions prior to making a purchase.

~♥~ PHOTOGRAPHS
Since the photographs are considered to be part of the description, please view all of the photographs to determine if the item is to your liking.

Please note colors may vary depending upon lighting and computer monitor settings. Therefore, if specific colors are important to you, please contact me with any questions prior to checking out.

Additional policies and FAQs
~♥~ CUSTOM ORDERS
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or requests you may have. If you would prefer different colors or flowers or have a particular idea for a floral home decoration, I may be able to make a custom piece just for you.

~♥~ CLAY FLOWER SCULPTURES
My hand-sculpted European-style one-of-a-kind, original clay flower sculptures have the look and feel of ceramic bisque. Each piece is hand painted in soft harmonizing tones with acrylic paint, then signed and sealed. The uniqueness of my creations makes them superb for gift giving, as well as conversation pieces. An informative brochure with care instructions and the “Language of Flowers” is included with each piece which is particularly beneficial when given as a gift.

Caring for your sculpted floral creation is quite easy. Each piece has been sealed to protect against humidity; however, the sculptures are intended for indoor use only, should never be submerged in liquids of any kind and should be kept out of direct sunlight. Care of the sculpture should be taken as you would with any fine collectible and kept out of the reach of young children. If you would like to receive a copy of the care instructions prior to making a purchase, please send me a note through the Etsy messaging system. Throughout the years I have been informed by many who have purchased my floral sculptures how easy they are to care for.

If your sculpture is ever in need of repair, please know that in most instances, I am able to restore items to their original state. Buyer would be responsible for the cost of repairing the item as well as all shipping, handling and packaging costs to and from afloralaffair.

~♥~ PHOTOGRAPHS
When taking the photographs, I am diligent to show the true colors and likeness of each piece. However, please be aware that color variations may occur from one computer monitor to another and may also vary throughout day.

~♥~ GUARANTEES
afloralaffair does not give any guarantees or warranties on any item.

~♥~ LIABILITY
Dolls, toys and miniature items should be kept out of the reach of young children (3 to 5 years of age and younger) and pets since some parts may pose injury and/or be a choking hazard.
