I'm back in the USA for a while (really, really missing my family in Denmark, though). While I'm here, I'm trying to catch up on a lot of loose ends, one of which is I have a large number of people who have been requesting new or replacement dog, cat, fish, and other animal ceramic masks. So I have opened up the studio again and have made my first kilnload, which I have listed on Etsy. This time, though things are going to be a bit different: To make inventory control easier for me, this time each mask has its own unique identifying number, and thus each one is one of a kind. There will be one exception to that format, though, and that is if someone has contacted me about a broken piece that they want to replace, I will do my best to copy the piece as closely as I possibly can -- if you have photos of it. If not, you can describe it to me as best you can, and I'll try to come up with a close approximation for you.
Anyway, if you're interested in a new or replacement ceramic mask, be sure either to check out the various places I'll be showing them (each place will have different items - sorry about that, but it's the only way I can think to do it without things getting really confusing. So the first kilnload, as I said, is on Etsy, and here's the link for those: http://www.etsy.com/shop/wildwildthings?section_id=10397779. The second kilnload will be on my website, http://www.dottiedracos.com. And the third kilnload will be at my Artfire shop, http://www.artfire.com/ext/shop/studio/LarkStudios. Once I've done all three venues, I'll start over in the same order with the next kilnloads. Each kilnload is around 15 pieces, and each kilnload takes about two to three weeks to complete.
