Welcome to my shop!
A place that reflects part of my person and that complements some areas of my profession. I work in children's book illustration with volume technique, using ceramics and other materials to build scenarios and characters, combining with two other areas of my education, the Animation Cinema and Photography.
I hope this is a nice place, for you to visit, where I can share my original handmade creations.

Each figure I make is unique and has unique characteristics, made of stoneware and/or terracotta. All figures are sculpted without the use of mass production techniques and then fired at approximately 1080 degrees.

Please contact me for any questions.
Thank you for stopping by !

Some items are ready to ship, and some need time to be prepared - read carefully the description the item you are about to purchase, and contact me if you need the shipping time to be cleared out.

Most items are shipped during the next 2 days after the payment is cleared. Purchases are not shipped during the weekends. In case of custom order, please contact me to present the details of producing time.

Contact me if you haven't received the package. Sometimes it can happen due to circumstances that are not under my control. I generally use a registered post, providing the buyer with a tracking number. I do not refund lost or stolen packages.

I ship to the address indicated in your Etsy receipt. If you want an item to be shipped to another address, please include it in the personal message to the seller.

I am not responsible for packages not received due to incorrect address.
The buyer is responsible for any custom fees, taxes, or any receiving fees.

At the holiday time, I would ship as previously mentioned, however assuming the crowds in post offices, and the quantity of mail travelling around the world at the time, it may take longer for an item to arrive. That's why, make holiday purchases as early as possible. I assume responsibility to send your purchase during the next 2 days, however I will not assume the responsibility if the item arrives later than usual!
Additional policies and FAQs
I cannot guarantee that the colors you see in your monitor are the same as in my monitor. Generally I try to photograph my items responding the closest to the real colors.

Please contact personally for custom orders, other colours etc.

I would appreciate the feedback - it is very important for the seller. Let me know if you have any comments or suggestions on my work.
