Ceramic Art To Make You Smile

Voorhees Township, New Jersey | 58 Sales

Announcement    Long-time fans know it's been a looong time since Grandpa Toys put something new on the shelves of his shop. I've been developing a new board game and came to the same conclusion you would expect from anyone serious about playing board games: I needed my own game token. (You can check them out on my GrandpaToys Facebook fan page.)

If you take your gamesmanship as seriously as I do, then you probably do not want to land on Free Parking in a thimble! You already play a strong psychological game. Now, you can put your Game Face on!

Take your time as you meander through my shop of "cartoon folk art"-styled pieces. If my art makes you smile and you can imagine something that you don't see, let me know. Not sure where to begin? In addition to those pieces currently available, check out those which have already been purchased, below. Again, you are also welcome to view (and join) my Facebook fan page which features pictures of pieces I've created for family and friends.

Thanks for your time. I hope you enjoy your visit and, if you do, please tell your friends.

Grandpa Toys' Style of Cartoon Folk Art in Clay

Married forty-plus years, Grandma Toys, a one-time reading specialist, once told me I was a "divergent thinker" as opposed to a "convergent thinker". I believe it means that, if I could find the box, I would think outside of it.

In anticipation of having time to fill once I retired, I took a ceramics class through the Cherry Hill Recreation Dept. My inability to find our instructor's "box" when she suggested we make a plate or a bowl resulted in a planter (see photo above). It was so much fun, when the classes ended I bought 25 lbs of clay at a local art supply store.

A child of the Fifties, I suppose it was inevitable that my longtime childhood love affair with TV cartoon shows would manifest itself in my art -- hence, my description of my style as cartoon folk art.

It didn't take long before I was creating pieces for family and friends. (Photos are available on my Facebook page.) After my son told me about Etsy, I opened this shop and stocked the shelves with Finger Faces which had so amused my baby grandson, Ethan (which led to my shop's slogan: Ceramic-Induced Smiles Since 2008).

If my ceramic silliness makes you smile and you would like something you haven't seen -- here or anywhere else -- I'd be happy to discuss making it for you.

Additional policies and FAQs
I generally wait for the "muse" to strike when I'm not otherwise creating something for family or friends. If you would like to suggest a modification to something you've seen or you want to propose something altogether different, let me know. I would much prefer to create something especially to your liking. If you'd like, you can see some of the things I've made for my family and friends on my GrandpaToys Facebook Fan page. Please understand that I cannot make something for you that includes a copyrighted image. But, anything else...



One last thing (which I learned from the movies): Any similarity between my Finger Faces, Door Faces, Personal Avatars and any person, living or dead, is totally coincidental (unless, of course, it was intended).
