“I want my art to be about the positive links that make us happier and more fulfilled. I like to think I'm bringing more smiles into the world.”

When asked why her artwork has spread with such enthusiasm, Melissa Gondek says, "because I'm sculpting love, and everyone needs more of that." She began by making mud pies as a little girl but swears she only ate one once. As an adult, she attended art classes at the Corcoran College of Art and Design and at the Art League School in Alexandria, Virginia, but allowed the pursuit of a practical degree to guide her years at the University of Virginia. After two decades in the business world, Melissa seized the opportunity of a cross-country move to reignite her creative passions. Her playful figures now keep people company in more than eleven countries across four continents, although Antarctica continues to elude her. She enjoys trying to foxtrot and railing against historically inaccurate fiction, although rarely at the same time. She gets entirely too sentimental about weddings, TV shows about lost pets, and the wild bunnies living in her backyard.

Nice Gift but Quality Less Than What I Expected


I bought this for my stepmother to put on her desk at her new job. It is a really sweet idea but I agree with other reviewers that the packaging came dinged up and I had to re-package it to make it look presentable for a present. I also was surprised that it didn't look as hand-sculpted as I expected and was missing details that would make it truly special. My step mom really liked it but I think it was more to do with the idea than the beauty of the execution.

The finished product lacks sculptural detail that the product information photo appears to have. Also, the glazing is rough, and makes the item look as if it is dirty. Between the condition of it's box (as if it has been handled numerous times), and the sculpture itself, I'm too embarrassed to give it as a gift.



Perfect for a literary cat lover.


Hard to see the details in the picture. The cat is sitting on the writer's lap.
