CUSTOM Ceramic Silhouette Portrait


There is no art form more traditional for honoring a dear loved one than the age-old custom of a silhouette. Whether a parent or a child, or a collection for the whole family, Paloma's Nest has reinvented this tradition using fine white ceramic clay, creating a modern heirloom piece that will endure and be cherished for generations to come. Hand-carved from an image that you send us, each silhouette tile will measure approximately 7"x9" (size will vary based on details such as hair, clothing, etc). Your silhouette arrives professionally mounted on black hardboard measuring 8"x10", which is perfect for framing (frame not included).

To make your custom silhouette even more special, we can include a name and year along the bottom edge of the tile. Specify this in your order in the "Personalize Yours" area here. 

Each silhouette is sold individually. Order by adding this item to your shopping cart. When you receive your order confirmation email, simply reply to us and attach any available photographs you have for the artist to use in creating the silhouette. We suggest a full profile view, taken from the side at the same height as the subject. Using a dark background behind the face also helps in making the details visible to the artist.

Your custom silhouette will be based on the images you provide. By submitting photos to us via email after you place your order, you acknowledge that you are the rightful owner of the photographs; as such, you grant us permission to create artwork based on submitted photographs.

Your custom silhouette will be done in a style similar to the examples shown here. Any special requests for details to include or omit will be considered. Please allow for the artist to have a level of artistic license and professional discretion in creating this rendering. Note that we do not guarantee a left-or right-facing portrait, so please specify in your order if you indeed have a preference.
