We make high quality miniature sculptures depicting historic sites in the South Western U.S. these we sell as magnets and ornaments. We have done the Alamo and the 4 Missions of San Antonio (San Jose, San Juan, Esada and Concepcion) as well as San Fernando Cathedral, The Little Church of La Villita, and the Spanish Governor's Palace along with the other 5 missions in Texas, 3 in El Paso(Ysletta, Socorro, and the Chapel San Elizario) 2 in Goliad (Espiritu Santo, and the Presidio La Bahia) and the L.B.J. Texas White House.

Outside of Texas we do Cliff Dwellings from Mesa Verde, Canyon de Chelly and The Gila Forest. We make depictions of ruined pueblos at Chaco Canyon, both Pueble Bonito and Pueblo Arroyo, the Great Pueblo at Aztec Ruins as well as the 3 Salinas Valley Pueblos (Grand Quivera, Abbo, and Quarai.) I have also done other buildings including Mission San Miguell in Santa Fe and a scene from Carlesbad Caverns.

We also do the center circle of the Aztec Calendar, some texas theme designs and Celtic knots.


We, Bill and Maggie, would like to welcome you to our home page We have made our living as potters in a small town, Mico, in the Texas Hill Country, just west of San Antonio since 1980. We now make sculptures of historic buildings of the Southwest and make them into magnets and ornaments.

El Mercado

When we were making pottery and selling it at Art Shows we spent a lot of weekends at the Mexican Market in San Antonio and over the years I have taken many pictures there so I thought I would share a few with you.
