enough politics!

back to shameless self promotion.i have a new shop section called "princess butterbean" in my etsy store. it includes art dolls and ceramic work resulting from my recent collaboration with an eight-year old friend. a percentage of sales will be donated to iris academy, a soon-to-be-built school for special needs kids near navasota, texas. #etsyforautism

working on a bunch of freestanding characters combining porcelain and my decals with princess butterbean's drawings. 

this one is uni. 

the princess says, "uni the unicorn lives in the forest. she likes flowers and likes to take big walks. she can make water rise up into the air so everything could have water. she glitters and sparkles with pink."
