Ceramic Texas Ornament
Karen Ahaus, owner of Ahaus Pottery, works with white stoneware and porcelain in her home studio in Grapevine, Texas. After teaching elementary school for nearly 20 years, she decided to pursue art as more than a hobby when she moved in Texas in 2011. Her grandmother was a wood chip carver, creating intricate patterns into wooden plates. When Karen inherited her incredibly sharp tools, she chose to use them to carve intricate designs into linoleum, then press the linoleum onto the clay to make unique textured designs. One of her favorite parts of working with clay is altering the pieces and creating something completely new. Each ornament measures 5” across and is ready to add the perfect touch to your holiday décor.
