A snowbabie is a small figurine that depicts some aspect of the Christmas holidays or of winter sports such as skiing and ice skating. The traditional snowbabie is made of unglazed porcelain and shows a child dressed in a snowsuit; the suit itself is covered in small pieces of crushed bisque, giving the appearance of fallen snowflakes. However, many other sorts of figures are typically associated with these snowy children: Santa's, Elves and gnomes, carolers, animals such as penguins and polar bears, adult sledders and skaters, snowmen, and even houses and Disney characters.

  • Snowbabies by Kristi Jensen Pierro is a collection of charming hand-painted, porcelain bisque figurines which offer countless opportunities to celebrate love, friendship, inspiration and life's memorable moments.

  • For over 20 years, the collection has been developed, lovingly produced and collected. Kristi's ideas for Snowbabies are inspired by watching children, and by thinking about her own childhood experiences. She makes rough sketches of her ideas and then refines these into actual illustrations. Next, Kristi makes careful scale drawings - of each side, top and bottom. Along the way, she adds little touches that make each Snowbaby collectible unique. These drawings are then sent to the sculptor who creates a three-dimensional prototype to the exact specifications of her artwork.
