For over 27 years Department 56 artist, Kristi Jensen Pierro has captured the beauty and splendour of winter. Her personal experiences and interpretations of childhood are artfully designed into each Snowbabies' piece and carefully named to ensure a sentiment of love, friendship or inspiration. The new SnowDream collection is inspired by a winter walk in the woods with icy colours of white, pink, grey and cool taupe. Each piece is sprinkled with glitter creating a magical effect. "As an artist my job is to invent. It's a nostalgic collection of figural giftware and trim full of warmth, whimsy and magic. It combines the simple elegance of bisque porcelain with glitter, shiny mica and tinsel.
