Father Christmas, Santa Claus, ceramic hanging ornament. Handglazed with bright colours, a lovely addition to your tree. This is my 2018 Santa - a rotund and jolly chap with rosy cheeks, carrying a blue sack.

Measurements : 14.5 cm long, (not including hanger), 7cm at his widest.

The hanger is red, green and white butchers twine.

These are individually handmade items and as such they will never be EXACTLY like the one in the picture - but very much the same, so that it makes no difference! Seriously, I can't tell them apart!

I cut around my own hand drawn template into the soft clay slab, and then inscribe the design onto the piece. Left to dry out for a few days, the piece is then fired to a temperature of 1040 degrees. This firing takes 24 hours including cooling time. I then remove him from the kiln, carefully paint on the coloured glazes, and fire him again.

He is a sturdy little chap so if you hang him on your tree, please choose a strongish branch!

I make a different Santa and Angel each year, so if you're collecting them, this one's a must have!

Happy Christmas! x

As expected, a beautiful Christmas Santa, bearing his sack of Toys. The colours are so intense and I’m thrilled to be adding to my collection of Cathy’s ornaments.
