The Gift

About this piece

This emotionally rich piece was created from love and tragedy.

My husband, Steve, bought this figurine for his mother—a Japanese couple picking persimmons. She had it for many years until it broke during a move after Steve’s death. I took the box of pieces home and found three pieces that told the story: the wife with her basket, the husband’s smiling face, and his hand that held his gift. They float in space, three dimensional, hollow, yet full of love.

So, even if you have items that are broken, but are meaningful to you, entrust them to me to create a wonderful space for them to live on.

The Wedding

About this piece


My aunt recently shared the contents of my grandfather’s trunk with my cousins and me. I was thrilled to receive my grandmother’s wedding dress, gloves, my grandfather’s matching cravat, and lots of jewelry.

From these is born this memorial image of their 1920s wedding. Note the wedding rings on the glove fingers. These will go to my cousin’s children, but all of us now have a visual memory of them.

Al and Hilma, both from Sweden, were married for more than 60 years. You’ll see the crystal lovebirds I gave them on their 60th anniversary in other pieces.
Consider this kind of image to immortalize a family wedding and share it with future generations. Learn more about commissioned pieces.
