Well - the current state of the world has cancelled my vacation so RMP will remain open for a while. Made some new cows. Stay well everyone - this too shall pass.
NOTICE - RMP will be closing on or about March 25 for a much needed rest. Not sure when I will return. Orders placed prior to close will of course be completed. Thank you all!

Welcome to Ragamuffin Primitives

It all started with one little brown primitive pig. I was making rag dolls and primitive folk art dolls, experimenting with different techniques and designs. Sometime in the spring of 2009, near the Cave Creek boat ramp in KY. I wanted to try something different and created this plain brown pig. Over the next few years, one pig became thousands. The pigs were joined by more primitive dolls, holiday primitives, and other barnyard folk. Through the years, the plain prim pigs became pig ornaments and went into the world by the thousands. They were featured in magazines. Kentucky gave way to Florida. I retired. Then I didn't. The Cave Creek name changed to Ragamuffin Prims (aka Ragamuffin Primitives).

Through it all, it is still just me, doing what I love - creating quirky, quality primitives that make people smile.

I'm not certain where my love of primitive things comes from..perhaps growing up in a 150 year old farmhouse. Inspiration comes from many sources, but as you can probably see, I have a thing for animals. My designs usually start with an idea of the finished item in my head - sometimes at 3 in the morning. They continue to evolve each time I make them.

Quality and customer satisfaction are very important to me. I was taught to take pride in my work, and I will fuss for hours over a piece until I'm satisfied. That being said, please remember these creations are primitives. Loose threads, asymmetrical shapes, ragged seams and other quirky traits are intentional and part of the design.

Ragamuffin Prims are intended as primitive art, home décor and collectibles. They are not intended as toys and are not suitable for small children.

All of the items you see at Ragamuffin Primitives are my original designs, hand-crafted with love and care, by me alone. Some are simple in design - but still require many steps and hours from concept to sketch to finished product. More complex designs may literally take days to complete the many layers required to achieve their special character.

My primitives are artistic creations, and I am very thankful and honored that they have been so well received. I am truly blessed to be able to do what I love, and express my creativity with this medium.

With that being said, I try to price items individually and reasonably. You are purchasing a piece of original art that, with proper care, should last indefinitely. Even though I may offer the same dolls and designs - they are all uniquely hand-crafted and all will have subtle differences. All of my creations are works of art, and the larger pieces are signed and dated.

I'm so honored to have my work (under former Cave Creek brand) featured in four different issues of PRIMS Magazine, published by Stampington & Co.

Thank you to all of my loyal customers. You continue to amaze me with your enthusiasm for my creations. Thanks for visiting and taking time to read this. I hope my primitives make you smile.
