    These ornaments are beautifully made: heavier and more richly colored that the photo can show. They are unique and stunning.

    The best gift received

    Posted by Heather on Dec 27th 2017

    I was given this set of mask for a Christmas gift from my sister Heather. I screamed with so much excitement. Although they arrived after Christmas, I look forward to decorating my tree next year with them. The unique craftsmanship is mind boggling. Impressively beautiful and colorful. The sizing of each mask is the perfect size, being about the size of a large Christmas ball. I have placed for more to be added to the wishlist, wanting to have last 5 more sets. When I informed my dear friend about the gift, Kathy immediately was also interested in wanting a set or two. I'm looking forward to seeing what's next from this magnificent craftsman.
