Made to Order: Please allow 2-3 weeks for me to make this. A Unique handcrafted cheerful and pretty hanging wall plaque made especially for Grandparents who you or your children are very much missing during these difficult times. This gift would hopefully bring a big smile and some joy to those who receive it. Because it is made to Order. I can change the design or use different colours if you want. Or I can carve grandparents names instead so feel free to message me with what you would like 🙂 It can either be a wall hanging version, or a standing plaque version which if you choose this design I will include a plastic folding stand with your order for free so it can be displayed beautifully. I can if you wish make a lovely glossy printed label to be placed on the back of the wall plaque with some personalised words from you to make it even more special and heartfelt.
Due to needing to shield I am unable to go to the post office so I am using a Next Day door to door Courier service once the product is ready to ship. I will email once the item is shipped along with its tracking details.
I used acrylic gloss paints along with a gloss medium glazing agent as a finish.
Two years ago I was in search of a hobby to give me some relaxation and enjoyment. So I bought myself a potter’s wheel and started to learn how to create items with clay. I have become very passionate in handcrafting clay items, not just with the potter’s wheel recently more so becoming imaginative and handcrafting other items in more of a sculpting fashion.
I am visually impaired as I have serious auto immune inflammatory eye conditions that have and continue to damage my eyes. I also developed medication induced cataracts which got to the point where I was literally almost totally blind. However, I have had two eye surgeries to get rid of the cataracts which they did and I feel truly blessed to have some vision back. But, my left eye vision currently is very limited as it has now developed capsule opaqueness plaque behind the lens that was replaced. So I am awaiting laser surgeries to see if they will prevent me from losing my sight totally in that eye. As for my right eye it is doing quite well at the moment I have visual distortion and reading is very difficult with either eye. However, I will not let that define me nor my other disabilities from doing what I have now found to be my true passion working with clay.
This is why I decided to see if people are interested in the handcrafted clay items I make.
I use a magnifier visor unit to assist me in doing the fine detail of my handcrafted items, this I find helps a lot. The more items I make the more skilled I become.
