These ornaments were created by imprinting white slabs of clay with a stamp. The clay was then cut into the shapes, a wire for hanging was inserted, edges were cleaned and trimmed before left to dry. While still greenware (unfired clay) the ornaments were glazed with a black underglaze. Each ornament was glazed 3 times and the glaze was wiped off of the raised areas to let the stoneware color show through and red berries and green leaves were painted before being bisque fired in a kiln. Once the ornaments were bisque fired, they were glazed three times with a clear cover coat glaze before going into a final glaze fire in the kiln.
I prefer payment through Paypal just because of the ease and security. Any form of payment offered through Etsy is fine.
I prefer to ship via USPS. If you prefer another carrier such as UPS or FedEx, email me and we can make arrangements. Remember, shipping ceramics can be expensive, but if your purchase totals $35 or more, shipping is free!!!
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
I enjoy creating custom orders. Contact me with your ideas, I will make sketches, scan them, and then email them to you for approval. All custom work must be paid for in advance before the sketching process begins. There will be rush fees on orders with a rush turn-around time.
