Ann Fisher Art Works is the name of my miniature business and this is my web site. My husband Larry Fisher also helps me with my miniatures. I'm also know as Ann Mowry for those of you who knew me at Southern Illinois University (SIU) during my college years, and as Anna Mae Mowry in Collinsville, Illinois, the town of my childhood. I have put my maiden name here just in case you are a miniature person that knew me as child or even when I was an art student at SIU Carbondale back in the early 1960's. If you are from Caruthersville, Missouri you just may know Larry. His step dad ran Kasper's Bakery on Ward Avenue for many years. It has been amazing to me just how many old friends and acquaintances that we have run into at miniature shows.
This web site was last updated April 16, 2011. Most new food pieces will be listed on CDHM first.
I think that you will enjoy looking at my large selection of foods. I also have a collection of toys which includes bears, bunnies, cats and other animals dressed in a variety of clothing all made of polymer clays. If you are a big Raggedy fan, I think that you will enjoy the family of Raggedy Ann characters that I make. If your favorite Raggedy character isn't listed just ask me to create one for you. All of my miniature pieces are meant for adult collectors and should never be given to small children as toys. Most of my animals contain wires that work to support the figures while the clay is baking and to make them more stable after baking.
At present I don't have photos for all of the items listed on the product lists. If there is an item that you want to order but are not certain if you will like it ask me about it. I would be more than happy to make up an item and send you a photo of it and a price on email. If it isn't what you want you do not have to buy it.
When we did shows, you could always count on seeing my husband Larry behind our sales table. If you came to our table at the right time you might find me there as well. Since I enjoy shopping and visiting with customers and fellow miniature artists at the shows; my dear heart ended up holding down the fort most of the time.
I hope you enjoy your visit to my miniature site. Be certain to bookmark us and check back often to see what's new.

Here are pictures of my work area, clay warmers, and one of me
|This is the main work table in my studio. I do all of the modeling, painting, and assembling of the finished pieces at this table. I have additional tables that I use for mixing and rolling clay. My work table is rarely this clean.||This is Tigger; he used to be the head clay warmer. My cat helpers take turns soaking up heat from the lamp and transferring the warmth to the clay. All of my clay is stored in plastic zip-lock bags, to keep the clay as fur-free as possible. Sadly, our Tigger passed away on Feb. 28, 2001.||Hi, I am Ann Fisher and this is my web site. I am the miniature artist behind the work that you will be looking at on these pages. I hope that you enjoy your visit. If I can answer any questions for you please feel free to email me at email@example.com|
|Meet Fred and Woody. They are on the clay warming team. In this picture they are taking a well deserved rest. All of that clay warming can really wear a cat out! Sorry to tell you Woody passed away on Election Day 2008. I have never met a sweeter animal than Woody.||Here is a picture of the guys bird watching.||This is Tudy; she is now the head clay warmer. Tudy spends most of her time in my miniature studio, so she thinks that she is in charge. We have installed a bird feeder just outside the second story studio window. The cats seem to enjoy watching the birds while they are warming the clay. Could a cat's life be any better!|

A Little Something About My Work
I use Fimo, Cernit, and Sculpey polymer clays to create my miniatures. I also use a variety of paints, stains, paper, wood, yarn, beads, and fabrics to create the look that I am trying to achieve. It has been very hard for me to limit myself to just a few areas of the miniature world. I love trying new materials and techniques.
Many of my food items reflect the food I grew up eating. The roll setup, the baked ham, and the pot roast look just like my Mom's. The pies, pineapple upside down cake, and biscuits are my Daddy's The food line is ever growing. Many of the items that I make are not pictured and are sometimes not even on the price list. If there is something that you are looking for, please ask, because who knows, I may already make it or am developing it. I will be branching out to create dishes that Larry and I now cook in our "real" kitchen. I will be adding fish and veggie dishes to reflect how a lot of us are eating these days. I will also be adding interesting desserts to my food line.
I will continue to make the Raggedys and will be adding more of the family of characters. I collect Raggedy books and other memorabilia, so it isn't as if I will run out of ideas anytime soon. I will continue to create the toy sized bears, bunnies, cats, and other animals that many of you have been collecting for a number of years. If you have a special request in the bears, bunnies and cats line, please feel free to write or call me.
I have loved all of the dogs and cats that have passed though our home over the years; so making miniatures of them seems to be a natural thing to do. I will be adding miniature pets to my line of miniatures in the near future. My plans also include creating a line of wreaths, small floral arrangements, and other decorative accessories for the doll house.

Orders may be placed via e-mail or snail-mail. Please put "Miniature Order" or "Miniature Questions" in the Subject line of any emails.
I no longer have prices on items in my galleries or on my product lists. Cost and lead times of components for my miniature products are too unpredictable at this time. Please contact me for a price quote and an estimate of when I will be able to deliver.
Please send all email to firstname.lastname@example.org. It will help me a great deal in filling your order if you would use the numbers that are listed next to each item on the price list or in the pictures. On the food list you will see that all items have a number and the letter F next to them. On the toy price list there will be an item number followed by a B or a T and in some case an M. When I receive your request, I will acknowledge the order. In my return email I will give you an expected shipping date, total cost including shipping, and answer any questions that you may have about my work.
Shipping and Packing
I usually ship orders through the US Post Office; unless you ask for some other type of shipping. Shipping and packing charges will depend on the weight of the package and the distance that it has to go. You may send a list of the items that you are interested in purchasing with your zip code, and I will let you know what the cost would be. Minimum shipping and packing charges for a single item can be shipped first class mail for just a few dollars. Sometime two items can be shipped in this smaller package. When there are a number of items in the order the cost is usually higher. This charge includes confirmation of shipment and packing materials as well as PRIORITY MAIL. All international buyers need to contact me for shipping costs.
The package should be insured; as I will not replace or make refunds for packages that are lost or damaged in the mail if the package wasn't insured.
USPS insurance coverage is optional and the prices can be found on their web site.
Here are the current (April 2011) insurance rates:
|$0.01 to $50||$1.75|
|$50.01 to $100||$2.25|
|$100.01 to $200||$2.75|
|$200.01 to $300||$4.70|
|$300.01 to $400||$5.70|

$600.01 to $5000(maximum liability is $5,000)
|$7.70 plus $1.00 per $100 or fraction thereof
over $600 in declared value
If for any reason you are not satisfied with your order, simply contact me to make arrangements to return it. Upon return, I will send you a prompt refund, minus the cost of shipping.
Please keep in mind that all items are hand made, so no two are exactly the same.
I am a proud member of CDHM (Custom Dolls, Houses & Miniatures) http://www.cdhm.org/.
