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.

It feels great to be in my studio even if it's a disaster from the move! I'm working on one sculpture that I call"Beautifully Bent but not Broken" that was inspired by my son's journey with scoliosis. The other is a family of 4, 7th anniversary sculpture.

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!
