Chess set with animals from around the world

Here the pictures of a custom order chess set with animals from around the world. These animals were chosen because they have a special meaning to both the person for whom the chess set is and the person whom ordered the chess set. This is their reaction when they...

Cake toppers

Wouldn't it be nice to have something you can use everyday, which was part of your wedding cake?  I thought so and I'm happy to create a custom functional cake topper for you.                    A tea strainer, butter dish or salt pig are examples of what's possible....

Little help for a friend

Look what I got in return for a little help to a friend. I fired some porcelain for Mouseblossom, as she doesn't have a kiln. She had decals made of her lovely illustrations of birds and cats among others and these needed to be fired to the porcelain bases. In return...

Tree stumps make great sugar bowls
