An important part of the Day of the Dead celebration, calaveras, or sugar skulls, help to celebrate life and the remembrance of loved ones. Their main use is decorative, and while the Day of the Dead and All Soul's Day are in mid-Fall, there's no reason you couldn't use this on your holiday tree (or just hang it in a window year-round, we see you, sugar skull lovers!).

HaldeCraft ceramics begin life as slip-cast, hand-built, or wheel-thrown pieces and then are painted and glazed and put out into the world, all by the hands of one person. I learned ceramics like an old-school apprentice, at the feet of my grandmother who had a studio in the 1950s and 1960s, and many of the pieces I make incorporate now-vintage molds that she bought then. My pieces are unique, hand painted, and proudly made in my own home studio with confidence, mindfulness, and joy.
