Family Nameplate for Home

Terracotta Nameplate
Family Nameplate with Hangings
There was a spark in my eye when i opened the kiln and found this nameplate intact and safe. I made this nameplate with lot of love in my heart....seeing the bonding and love of this sweet family. I wanted to use a happy font so each alphabet is handcarved without the use of any stencil or mold. The little terracotta charms hanging at the bottom of nameplate are again handmade. I did not want to use the big hangings like i earlier use in my nameplate. All I wanted is to add  something small and cute that could make a jingling sound when they move and touch each other. So i decided to handcut a series of irregular shapes from a slab of clay. I was quite excited to check the installation,,,so we clicked the pics even before painting. so this one has to undergo final step with paints and brushes....till then Happy Claying!!
