Originally designed in 1989, these luminaria began Robin’s business as a wholesale designer and artist.  Robin is celebrating her 29th year anniversary in business by offering these lovely timeless pottery pieces that add charm to any home or garden.

All luminarias and candle cups are handmade from terra cotta earthen ware.  Kiln fired, they come painted or unpainted.  They are built from slab clay and pinch pot method  Then the headdress/ ears/ collars/ mask/ capes are fastened on.  After all that, a design is drawn on the cylinder part and cut out.  They are then burnished to a beautiful glow and fired to 2000 degrees.    Each one is a  whimsical character that reflects life in the desert and southwest culture.  They are totally functional and meant for a candle or a battery operated  candle.  They are indoor or out door decor,  and can be electrified.  Each piece is signed by Robin.  Come back often because she has more designs being introduced later this month.
