I have purchased several pieces by the Gamez Family and have been consistently impressed by the craftsmanship and creativity of their work. I look forward to seeing more of their wonderful creations on Novica.

"Unique and beautifully executed!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

The artistry of this lovely dove is outstanding. I am usually really good about checking measurements of things (I keep a tape measure by the computer to help visualize somethings size), but I just assumed this was of a similar size to a wonderful ceramic duck that I purchased from another Novica artist. I was wrong and happily so, as she is quite large and will be even more amazing once I have something planted in her. Many thanks to the Gamez Family and Novica!
