Nancy Malay creates a variety of vintage-inspired holiday pieces. In her cozy home workshop in Faribault, MN, she meticulously handcrafts each item, using paperclay, papier mache and cloth.

Embellishments of mica, antique trimmings, German glass glitter and tinsel give each unique figure its own personality. These handmade collections artfully represent all holidays.

Chosen by the prestigious Early American Life magazine as one of the Country’s top Artisans, Nancy was listed in the 2008, 2011 and 2012 Directory of Traditional American Crafts Holiday issues.

She was selected to design a step-by-step snowman project for Better Homes andGardens 2010, 2011, 2012 & 2013 Holiday Crafts magazine.
