Primitive Hand Sculpted nativity Holy Family

For the past few holiday seasons, I have sculpted my own version of the nativity, or The Holy Family.
I used to use Sculpey in ivory, but it seems that the company has discontinued that color. So, since I love all things white, right now, I decided to sculpt them in all white, including their faces.  I like my version because they are not cutesy or cartoon-ish like many hand made nativities....just my preference.  My intention is to make them look like a relics that have been found on an archeological dig.  Baby Jesus is simply wrapped in a clay swaddling blanket. Each is faceless.  I stained them to make them look very very old and primitive.  They would work well in a shabby chic setting.

I sculpted Mary and Joseph over an aluminum foil armature.  Each piece is very sturdy. This set would make a wonderful heirloom to pass down to children and grandchildren.

We Three Gnomes

Aren't these just too silly?  I love them!  These are my new "stocking stuffer" sculpts.  I have them sitting on an old window that is hanging in my hallway.  It makes a great prop for my shabby chic, cottage sculptures.  I sculpted them with white Fimo and sprinkled some fairy dust on their hats. 
Their noses are the only thing that shows on their faces!

3 miniature shabby kittens!

I don't know about you, but I am always on the lookout for unique stocking stuffers.  I decided to offer my collectors some of my simple, primitive style pieces to put in their loved ones stockings or for giving to friends!

My first offering is set of cute miniature kittens in three different poses.  They are shabby chic and each has a ribbon and brass bell around her neck. I named them Snowball, Crystal, and Frost.  They would be a One of A Kind (ooak) surprise for any cat collector or miniature collector!  You could even break up the set to give to 3 friends. I think they are cuter together, though. 

I started them at a very low $6 which only covers my supplies to make them, so they are a great deal!
