Ceramic Christmas Gnomes are handmade, unique and cute Christmas decor items.
They make perfect, magical Christmas gifts for anyone.
Centuries ago (pre-Christmas) Scandinavian people believed house gnomes guarded their homes against evil.
If you were good the gnomes were good to you but if you were bad they would play tricks on you like sitting on your head while you sleep to give you nightmares.
Later on their significance in history changed and in 1800's they were known as helpers of Father Christmas (Elves!)
After all these years gnomes continue to be a cheerful addition to any home during the holidays...
My gnomes are hand formed out of speckled stoneware clay and their hats are finished with satin white glaze and their big noses and bodies are left unglazed in the natural colour of the clay.
*The photographs are accurate representations of the design but each piece is handmade without use of any moulds so slight variations may occur and the piece you receive will be unique and one of a kind.

I love working on custom orders because I know what I create will be very special to you.
Custom orders take longer to ship than the items that are already made as ceramics need to be made , dried (drying period varies depending on the size of the piece), fired once to bisque and than fired again to glaze, therefore they can take upto 6-7 weeks to ship but I promise you it will be worth the wait 😍 when you buy a custom piece you will be the only one in the entire world that has one...
