Hello, my name is Ingrid Hooper and each piece is formed entirely by hand from terracotta clay. No molds are used. I make slabs of clay by using a rolling pin; then I hand carved the clay by using knives for cutting out the roof, balconies, etc. When completely done, it is then kiln fired between 1400 - 1500 degrees.
Each piece is then painted using acrylic paints and then I add a protective coating to create a permanent care of the paint. Most pieces can me hung on a wall as picturesque wall art. Candles or small electric lights may be used to illuminate the windows and doors creating a distinctive lighting accent piece. Many pieces as well, are designed as a planter for small to medium bromeliads (air plants), or succulent plants.
