Handcrafted Belsnickle Santa figure, 9" tall, was
created by molding chalkware (plaster of paris) into a rare German antique chocolate mold. The white plaster surface offers a 3D canvas for the design and colors of your choosing. The piece shown was hand painted with an intricate leaf design.
1) This piece can be painted in the color of your choice with no design for $95.
2) Choose the design shown for $150.
3) Prices for more complex designs are upwards of $150. Email for more photos of different designs that I have done using this mold in the past.
The inspiration for my artwork reflects a love of floral and fauna, historical art motifs and the beauty of nature.
Using self-taught methods, my folk art captures the character and warmth of a centuries old tradition of chalkware and offers unique, hand crafted treasures. While some pieces are crafted using engaging innovative designs, others are inspired by the designs of centuries past. The exacting craftsmanship, colorful design, and finishing of these pieces reflects our historic past and as a result, each piece takes on the patina of a well-loved antique. Finishing expertise and attention to eye-catching details ensure a treasure that will last a lifetime.
