Moni has been making her hand-sculpted angels and bunnies for over 25 years. She made decorative and functional pottery for years, then started making angels at Christmas and bunnies at Easter. Now she also makes nativity scenes, mermaids, and birds. She makes Neshoba County Fair buildings for the art show at the Fair. Her tools are simple by design. She enjoys the primitive nature of working with clay by hand and with small tools. She combines an unglazed look with paint, sometimes sequins, ribbons and fabrics. Each one of her figures is unique.
