12 (or more) ceramic ornaments feature YOUR HOME in a textured relief with my signature watercolor glaze. Makes a wonderful remembrance and keepsake for gift giving at the holidays, a grandparents' birthday, special anniversary, or unique wedding favor! A truly one-of-a-kind gift option for your special occasion!
With your digital photos as inspiration and guide, I sketch and handcarve a master relief, pressing it into soft, wet clay, cut the clay into ornament shape, slowly dry, trim, sand, and kiln-fire your ornaments. Midway through the process, I will apply multiple glaze 'washes' in what can be described as 'painterly fashion', finishing each with crystal clear glaze, and a final firing. When the kiln cools, I add a cotton hanging cord (plus a small charm if you'd like), attach a story card describing this process, and individually wrap each of your keepsakes in its own gold organza and satin drawstring bag.
3.5" & 4" ornaments are pictured, but size and shape can be customized, depending on your subject/photos. See photos for an example of a submitted photo of a home and the corresponding ornament I created. Additional photos include examples created for custom wedding favors and family holiday packages.
These are individually hand made works of art that make a touching and impressive gift!
Price reflects minimum of 12 ornaments at $24@ plus insured domestic shipping. Price break at 100 & 1000 or more ornaments.
