Handmade Puffin Ornament
About Roberta Originals:
- Roberta Originals are a series of collectables, hand sculpted from polymer clay by Prince Edward Island artisan Roberta Palmer.
- Each character is individually hand built using a variety of techniques and simple sculpting tools including pasta machines and knitting needles. If you look closely you will discover that fingerprints are a distinct characteristic of every piece. Each fisherman, angel, snowman or Santa has a unique personality developed through Roberta’s flair for creating adorable Faces that make you smile. Many of the clay colours are custom blended with an eye towards today’s colour trends.
- Roberta Originals are produced with sister-in-law JoAnne and sister Janet helping assembling the pieces while husband Andrew contributes behind the scenes to help things run smoothly.
- Roberta has been designing and sculpting these delightful figures in her home studio since 1994. She is a juried member of the PEI and New Brunswick Crafts Councils and her work may be found in fine craft and gift stores around Atlantic Canada.
