Welcome to Claysonnets. I feel strongly that we are all exactly where we are meant to be at any given time.... with that said, I'm glad you have arrived here. I do believe that Claysonnets has been manifesting for many years. I was buying wholesale rubber stamps and creating elaborate cards in 1987, long before the stamping craze hit. I started delving into spiritual energy work in my early 20’s. Throughout my many jobs (all of which had a way-too-early start time) I was always taking on new creative hobbies. As my 3 children began tying their shoes by themselves I began a career as a children's photographer (www.danabaurophotography.com). People often ask 'are you a photographer or a clay artist?' - the answer is I am both. I grew up with an artist/potter mom and a teacher/writer dad... and a basement that was always a creative workshop for myself & my 4 siblings. I started experimenting with clay over 10 years ago under my mother’s tutelage. I wrote down all of my ideas over the years and after some research I created my first wave of custom stamps for my products. I'm often asked where I find my quotes and the truth is the quotes find me. The ideas kept coming. As my custom-created stamp orders began to arrive, I created a home studio space (grabbing any minutes I could amidst the chaos and responsiblities of being a mom of 3) and Claysonnets was born. All of the stamps I work with are custom made… you won’t see them anywhere else. I thought of my gifted friend Reiki Master Lucy Walker (www.lucianawalker.com), who I had done some spiritual work with over the past few years and knew I had to have her work along with me to bless the stones I was creating. What you see here is the result of what I believe to be the intersection of a creative dream and finding something you love to do. Thanks for being a part of the journey. *If you are interested in a custom order (think "favors") for an event (corporate, personal, non-profit, etc) please contact me. **please read ORDER TIME INFO on home page before you place an order!
