Hold Stumble and remember how important you are. Stumble's name serves as a badge until forgiveness is earned. Because the clock cannot be turned back, there is only moving forward to rebuild trust. He is a reminder that our inadequacies are a temporary setback if we keep a good heart with strong priorities. A sincere apology requires no response and can be felt over time. No one is perfect, but some of us have more to learn than others.
Stumble's eyes are closed, as he is embarrassed of his actions. His head is tilted to the side, almost like a balloon, signifying that losing one's head can lead to regretful mistakes. Stumble's hands are humbly clasped in front to show his sincere posture. If you look closely, you will see an arrow in a circular shape on his chest, which is sign language for 'sorry.' Although actions speak louder than words, the importance of saying the words on his back panel is great: "I'm sorry."

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.
