Rosie is a little lady who is mighty big on gratitude. Her humble yet upright stance is a visual exclamation to an earnest thanks. When one is filled with gratitude, there is little room for anything else until it is shared. She reminds us to express our appreciation for each other. Words alone fall short in recognizing the best in life. Given with a heart magnified by gratefulness, Rosie adds dimension to this now enduring moment.
Rosie's hair is swirled into a bun and capped with a single rose. For hundreds of years, a wreath or a bouquet of roses has represented gratitude. Today the rose serves as the inspiration for this sculpture's name and story. Her body is shaped like two stacked Hershey's kisses as a nod to her sweet nature. On her back, she carries her heart message of "Thank You." Gratitude that starts small and is repeated through these simple words can change the world.

About the Maker: Christy Coltrin
The making of this artwork started at home using clay and cake-decorating tools, as she thought about what was most important in life. Once the characters and short stories were defined, Christy took the clays into the sculpture studio she co-owns with her husband. These petite, sculptural figures are made using time-honored casting methods. Each Tiny Sparks edition is produced in two intimate sizes: the Ambassadors editions are about four finger tall, and the Travelers editions are about the size of a thumb. Slight variations in size and finish are part of the handmade charm.
