Announcement   I create Family Christmas Ornaments, Anniversary Plaques and Sculptures all inspired by life, love, and mostly family! One key feature of my family designs is all the figures are connected and become one. I was greatly inspired by the idea of when a couple gets married, two become one. When I began to add children to my designs I continued the theme of connectedness by creating the children around the parents all emerging together.

How many of you remember this stage of your growing family - being very pregnant and your toddler still wanting to be picked up? I love that I was able to capture this moment for this lovely couple celebrating their 10th Anniversary. #familyportrait

About

My little clay "sketches" for larger sculptures turned into personalized family ornaments!

After a few years of only creating very detailed portrait clay wedding sculptures and cake topper, I needed to created something else that expressed my personal style. I started out making small clay "sketches" that I hoped to turn into larger ceramic sculptures of families. I was inspired by the amazing mothers and fathers I saw around me as well as my own family.

After posting a few pictures of my "sketches" to an online forum, several friends asked for them to represent their family. As the holiday season approached, one of the moms on the board asked me to turn the mini clay sketch into an ornament. That's when the light bulb came on!! I've been making personalized family ornaments every since!

I strongly feel these family ornaments are not just ornaments - they little works of art!

    I love sculpting with clay! Creating these personalized family Christmas ornaments is a way for me to combine my love of family with my love of sculpting.
