Impressions in Clay
Looking to create a lasting impression of your little one's hands and feet in clay? I'll create a piece of handmade artwork that you will treasure forever!
I'm a local ceramic artist creating very personalized decorative tiles with impressions of children's hands and or feet. Hang them in your house or give as a gift. These make great gifts for mom, dad and grandparents or give the most unique gift at a baby shower with a gift certificate for an imprint.
Impressions are done in my Needham home studio or host a "clay date" and I'll come to you to do the impressions. Invite other mom's to your house for a "clay date" and I will come prepared to neatly do all of the impressions.
Here's what other moms have thought of their impressions:
"Just wanted to let you know that my in-laws love their ornament. They turned out great. My mother-in-law even told me she is going to hang it on her wall after Christmas.""Hello Tanya! Thank you! We love the hand imprint. It's already hanging on the wall. It's amazing and her hand has already grown!! You did a wonderful job! Thank you again!"
"Maggie and I both wanted to let you know that the 3 impressions you made for us were a huge hit with their grandmother. Thanks so much!"
I look forward to creating a special keepsake that you will treasure forever! -Tanya

Tanya is amazing. I took my daughter who is 23 months there to get impression of her feet and hands for grandparents gifts, and my daughter was a little scared at first. Tanya was very good with her and let Sophia take her time to get used to the feel of the clay. I was also very impressed with the many choices you have for color and design. When I asked her if she could do a sunflower, "sure no problem". The other think that I liked about Tanya is that she is very quick to get back to you with any question you have. She was a true joy to work with. Someone that I will use again and also tell my friends about. Thank you Tanya for making this experince a great one for both me and my daughter.
Tanya made my daughter's newborn hand and foot impression into a work of art that she will hold onto forever. She does beautiful finishing and her turn-around time is very fast! She is also much cheaper and does much prettier designs than the competitors out there. She's great with babies (my daughter was 10 weeks when we did her first impression) and toddlers (i just had a Christmas hand print ornament made of my now 14 month old). Additionally, she made a wonderful ornament of our dog's paw print that we will cherish always. I can't recommend Tanya's work enough!
I had impressions done of my son for family holiday presents last year ~ beautiful and VERY affordable. I also had a theme plaque done for my neice's room without an impression - Tanya was very clever and made little 3-D octopus, starfish and fish; she is very talented and creative ~ she can make anything to fit any occasion.
