I capture a moment in time by creating a handmade tile or dish with impressions of your little one’s hands and feet in clay. I can also help you celebrate an engagement, wedding, anniversary, birthday, baptism, confirmation or holiday with my personalized ceramic dishes, plaques & ornaments.
In 1998 I graduated from Mass Art with a BFA in ceramics. Then I spent many years as a marketing manager and eventually started creating with clay again. In 2009 after the birth of our son I decided to say goodbye to corporate and focus on family and Zinnia Designs custom ceramics. In 2012 our daughter’s arrival competed our little family. My studio is located in our home allowing me to have a nice family/career balance. Days can be long and very busy, but I wouldn’t trade it for the world!
Click the “shop” link to see all the custom personalized items I offer in my Etsy shop. Additional information on hand & foot impressions is found under “imprints”.
I personally hand make each piece and impress the images/text into the clay so no 2 pieces are ever exactly the same.
I take great pride in creating beautiful items you will treasure forever and in providing great customer service to all.
These precious pieces make wonderful gifts for mom, dad, grandparents & God parents.
Email or call to make your weekday or Saturday appointment. (Needham studio address will be provided once appointment is booked)
The day of your appointment come to my bright and cheery Needham MA studio!
We’ll pick the colors, designs and personalized details for your tile together.
I’ll neatly take the impressions in non-toxic clay and then I do the rest of the work in my studio.
The piece will be complete in approximately 4+ weeks depending on my production schedule.
Let Zinnia Designs come ready to neatly take everyone’s impressions in the comfort of your own home.
Mingle with the others and kids can play while I individually meet to discuss the decorative details for your tile and take the impressions.
