"Love these!"

I am very picky on how my catrinas have to look. I only own 2 and this was my 3rd. LOVE IT! The muted colors especially because most seem to be too bright and showy and I know some people love that but these are toned down and so I ordered 2 more. Waiting for the turquoise to be back in stock!!!!

"A prized addition to my collection of pottery and ceramics."

A beautiful , well made and sculptured work of art. The colors are vibrant and the detail is perfection. The Life Renewed sculpture is displayed in my family room for full exposure to visiting family, guests, friends and neighbors to appreciate. Always rave reviews and complements from them. A wonderful addition for my Novica ceramics collection. Thank you, Steve

"Nicely done"

Mask doesnt quite pop the way I expected it to - it looks relatively flat. But its still a fine piece of work and certainly an unusual item to include in a display.
