Sahl’s winter wonderland polymer

When Sharon Sahl unveils her polymer clay gingerbread houses, I know the holiday season has begun. Sharon’s attention to detail is phenomenal and her knowledge of Christmas cookies and candies is comprehensive. Every butter cookie and ribbon candy is mouthwateringly accurate and the scenes are magical (so much so that I keep mine on display all year long).

The houses are decorated with candy and cookies and icing, requiring multiple bakes before the bases are started. Finishing the bases with paths, fences, trees, gingerbread men, snowmen, candy gardens and perhaps a pond or stream is the last step,” she says.

Sharon’s only made ten of these beauties this year. Please buy them quickly so that I can stop obsessing. She’s been making ornaments and sculptures since the 1970s, first in bread dough and in polymer since 1983. Her long-time collectors are happy she’s moved back to Ohio.

Enjoy her winter wonderlands and have a wonderful weekend.

          Oh my goodness, the more I look at this, the more I notice and I’m in awe of her attention to detail!

            These are amazing. Would love to know the size and scale. Nothing on their website to indicate this info.

              Holy Cow! and the ones in her shop NOT for sale are even more detailed. Incrediable!

                The ornaments measure about 4-5inches tall. When my children were young we lived near the Sahl’s. Sharon taught them to make tiny clay figures – just for fun. I have a wonderful collection of her ornaments and am thrilled to find that she is back in Ohio. I wish I had found her earlier.
