So fun to add this Dinosaur Diffuser Christmas Tree ornament to the Etsy Shop! All 4 wee grand girls love dinosaurs. heart
My 6 year old grand daughter drew an Ash Creek Nativity on Post-it notes while playing in the studio today! A future creche artist for sure!
Busy getting ready for our one & only event this season - the Gentle House Holiday Bazaar on the WOU campus.
Time to put garden to bed for the winter. We love zinnias and gathering seeds to save for next spring.

About

Folk Art Potter - Nativity Maker

Ash Creek Nativities are created completely by hand from kiln-fired earthenware clay, decorated with water-based paint, and sealed with a handrubbed beeswax finish.

Influenced by her childhood in Iowa playing on farms, exploring the American Southwest & her Amish heritage, Ellen's whimsical folk art figures have celebrated the simple wonder of God's creation for more than 40 years in hundreds of homes & collections, including the National Cathedral in Washington, DC.

Will I receive the actual folk art in the photos?

Beginning in 2018 each Ash Creek Nativity figure, designed and handmade by the artist, will be created to be interchangeable with other sets. Please allow for slight individual differences from the piece in the photos.

Can I have the nativity sent directly as a gift?

Absolutely. I love being able to do this with gifts I purchase myself. Your crèches will be gift wrapped in an all natural burlap, kraft paper, raffia theme with a gift card. If you'd like to add a special message, let me know. Many folks buy multiple sets as gifts.

Are Ash Creek Nativities safe for children?

We love seeing families start the tradition of including a nativity in their Christmas celebrations. Although not toys, I try to make sure this is kid-friendly folk art. The paint and hand rubbed beeswax finish are non toxic.
