Free to Be

The adventurous nature of the Free Spirit angel, by California artist Lyn Swan, works year round to protect you and your loved ones from the menace of ruts and doldrums. Held aloft by shiny golden wings, the simple angel looks heavenly hanging in a window, while her long, vibrantly striped legs add a touch of whimsy to her demeanor. A splendid reminder to enjoy life, this ornament is a charming accent for your home or gift for friends who work too hard. Made in California.

Due to the handmade nature of this item, each one is one-of-a-kind may vary.

Lyn Swan

Lyn Swan has been a studio potter for more than 25 years, and she is continually fascinated by the texture of clay, its plasticity and flexibility. These characteristics allow Swan to capture a mood and preserve it--and then enhance it with color.

Swan's dishes offer subtle and often not-so-subtle contrasts in style, texture and color. All of her pieces are built by hand one at a time in a series of 12. First, she forms the shapes and textures them. Next, she fires them in a kiln. Then she applies colored glazes and fires the pieces again. Each dish travels its own journey.

Comments about FREE SPIRIT ANGEL:

It arrived wrapped in one sheet of bubble wrap and dumped in a box with no literature or explanation about it or the artist. My friend had no idea what it was nor its significance. Wouldn't a small card written with the same message as displayed in the online catalog have been appropriate? You are not doing justice to the item or its artist.

      Comments about FREE SPIRIT ANGEL:

      I purchased the Free Spirit Angel for my Massage Therapist, who is a bit of a Free Spirit herself, and adores angels. It was too perfect to pass up. And it really is just so pretty and whimsical. The only problem I had was that the first one sent to me had quite a few chips at the hem of the angels skirt. The ceramic is quite thin there, and makes it super delicate. I returned it, and received a new one, which still had a very tiny chip in it, but I decided to stick with it because I thought it actually added a little character. Hah! Overall, I was very pleased, and I hope the recipient will be, also!

        I wish it were larger. It's very cute but looks more like something you would "attach" to a gift than a gift itself.

          Comments about FREE SPIRIT ANGEL:

          I bought this for my mother, who was retiring. What really sold me was the description of the Free Spirit Angel, and the description was the sentiment I wanted my mother to have. However, the description was not included with the gift and so I had to cut/paste from the website and email it to my mother. I really wish this had been included.

          Comments about FREE SPIRIT ANGEL:

          LOVE this item, BUT unpredictable quality. I have ordered 6 of them over time, and 2 were great. The others had at least one flaw (legs hung awkwardly on 2, skirt had weird flip on one side, dent in head). The other issue is that the colors on legs/feet vary greatly. Some of the color combos are ADORABLE and others are unattractive. If you get a good one, these are the cutest!
