♥ CUSTOM / PERSONALIZED? ♥ -- ABSOLUTELY! ; Feel free to email me with any questions or requests. I am happy to make custom designs and personalized pieces *_^
♥ HOW IT'S MADE ♥ -- Pottery is a labor of love, patience and delicate craftsmanship .Every single piece I make goes through a long metamorphosis...I first design my pieces either in my head or sketch them out in my handy dandy notebook....then from a slab of hard, cold porcelain clay I hand-sculpt it or shape it with molds until it is how I envisioned it...The next step is the drying stage, which takes about a week and it is so important in order to keep the shape and strength of the piece . Once dry, I sand it and afterwards it gets kiln fired first at 1800 degrees. Once bisque fired, I glaze it all by hand (**with lead-free glazes**) and the it is ready to be fired at 2200 degrees. The overall process takes about 2-3 weeks to complete, achieving beautiful and unique piece to treasure for years!.-- every one of my kitchen pieces is food safe, dishwasher safe, oven safe and microwave safe!...Of course, like any porcelain, ceramic or pottery piece, handle with care and it will remain beautiful, useful and amazing for a very loooong time ^_^
♥ SO WHY POTTERY? ♥ -- ceramics are a durable and intricate material, where colors melt together, and textures come alive with unpredictable shades after being kiln fired. Every item is unique and very special!

This lovely flamingo is going to be the gift topper for a carefully wrapped, very special birthday present to my daughter (a painting of her young daughter). A few weeks later, 'flamingo' will adorn their Christmas tree. Beautifully made and with just the right amount of 'gold' touches to catch all those twinkling lights, I think it's going to be a hit. It arrived in great time, securely packaged & attractively presented (with a short personal note). What a lovely keepsake. Thank you, Melissa!
