Imprints – baby footprint and handprint in clay
Imprints – baby footprint and handprint
Get imprints of your child’s hands and feet. Your baby footprint and handprint are pressed into a soft piece of clay in Sarah’s workshop in Bridge Street Studios, Dundalk. The child’s name and age are then stamped into the clay with Sarah’s distinctive mixed hot press letterpress stamps. You can choose to have first names or full names, some people choose to mark the date or the age of the child.
You get the clay your child touched fired and glazed in a choice of colours to keep forever in a classic white box frame. You then leave the piece in the studio to dry and to be fired – this process can take 3-6 weeks. I like to be extra gentle with these one off pieces – as you know the babies grow so fast and it’s important to let these pieces dry gently to ensure no breakages. If you need the Imprints by a certain date, please do get in touch with me to discuss time scales as I am always happy to work to your deadlines if they are achievable.
The ceramic tiles are mounted on white wooden frames which are made in Ireland too!
