A quick introduction
I’m Roberta “Bert” Prostor owner/ creator of Bert’s Clay Studio, LLC and Bert’s Clay Creations. I’ve been an ornament designer for well over 30 years. It has been my joy as well as passion as long as I can remember. As a child I loved to play with Play-Doh to create something using my imagination. I believe children should tap into their God-given gift of creativity with something tangible. Just like an artist paints or a sculptor sculpts with their hands, I believe a “hands on” experience is vital to children’s creativity and imagination.
I’ve been blessed to be a mother of 6 children and married to my husband for 38 years in June. When our children were younger, I would go into each class at Christmastime and teach their classmates the process of polymer clay. Carefully cutting the pieces in chunks, little toothpicks and hooks to hang, were all placed in plastic cups and passed out. I would teach them each step along the way and then take home to bake, bringing back the finished product to school the next day (with 6 classrooms times 20 plus children in each, you do the math!). The joy on their faces said it all and it was my reward of the gift God had given to me. To this day, I have those kids saying to me on Facebook “Mrs. Prostor I still have that ornament I made in 3rd grade and it’s my favorite!” Parents too, cherish these precious ornaments their children had made years ago.
I am so excited to teach new generations the wonderful medium of polymer clay!
A Family Business

Bert's Clay Creations
"More than just ornaments... they're memories!" has been my motto for many years.
I've created personalized Christmas ornaments for well over 30 years. My ornaments have become a tradition passed down through generations. All of my designs are original and made to order. They are sculpted with years of experience and love! Who knows? Perhaps one of my "Clay Academy" students will take it to the next level!
