Saints and Santas

Here are just a few examples of the kinds of figurines I make of stylized Saints and Santas. No two figures are alike as each one is individually hand made. Many people have given me ideas for santas that would be interesting to them. If you have someone in your life who would get a kick out of a santa enjoying a particular hobby or sport, give me a call and let's see if we can come up with something unique!!
