Hallmark sat down (virtually!) with Keepsake Artist Sharon Visker to discuss her 2021 Season’s Treatings #13. Enjoy!

Sharon: “I wanted to go for sort of a diner feel this time. I remember as a kid going to eat and looking through the cases and glass domes to pick out my dessert. I wanted to have a variety of choices also like when the waiter brings a dessert tray and gives you the preview of yummy treats. My choice is almost always something that incorporates chocolate as a main ingredient.”

Sharon: “I sculpted the desserts in the traditional way which is a grey wax. Then, I asked [fellow Keepsake Artist] Rodney Gentry to build the glass dome and plate I wanted on the computer. I wanted this to be perfect, which is attainable on a computer-generated piece, but very hard to sculpt the way I work. I think it turned out to be a great collaboration.” We think so too, Sharon!

Sharon also went on to add that this ornament may or may not coordinate with another piece releasing in 2021!

We won’t give away too much, but we think this piece will bring lots of “magic” to your homes next year…
