Her Snow Children came to life in 1990, from which evolved charming limited edition figurines.   Each piece is designed and created by hand, one piece at a time, by Elaine and her daughter at her in-home studio in Clayton, Ohio. Each treasure is cast in earthenware, fired, hand-painted, and then dressed and adorned with the finest sparkles to looking like freshly fallen snow.  Authenticity of  Elaine’s signature appears on these collectible pieces.  Elaine Roesle’s Snow Children are just what Santa might conjure up in his North Pole workshop!
