#331 Joy

Acquired 2002

I found this ceramic pottery set at the Sugar Plum Craft Fair, November 2002. Designed by L. Tatman, this bubbly outgoing individual operates a family business. Her husband and parents were there to help her sell as well as they help her create the items. The set looks like bread dough but are ceramic pieces. The brightly colored characters are mounted to the red base to help them from being lost. Note the little chicken visiting Baby Jesus and the angel hanging from the stable. The star says “JOY” because Jesus brings joy to the world. Purchase price $78.00.
