The Enchanted Fairy House
Where did I find my inspiration? Browsing through Powell Book Store in Portland, Oregon, I spotted a small porcelain figurine in the shape of a gnome or fairy house. I purchased the figurine and within a few weeks started the build of a 12’ tall sculpted fairy house.
I didn’t want to do a copy of the porcelain model. It was just a reference, something to spark my imagination!
This is truly a one of a kind whimsical tiny house. I envisioned it to look as though fairies built the house with materials they found in the forest, fields and fairy gardens.
With all the negative, unkind happenings in ones life, my hope is that this will be an inspiration for children to use their imagination and gain fond memories of time spent in and around the enchanted fairy house.
When viewing this mystical fairy house, you will note that there is something eye-catching and attention grabbing everywhere you look. From really large chain-saw carved mushrooms to small wooden sculpted mushrooms; power carved ivy leaves with metal sculpture vines; individually carved shingles on the roof resemble pinecone petals; and a wood stem adorns the top of the roof.
Wanting something unique and eye catching for the window and door, I took classes to learn stained glass and completed a stained glass piece for the window.
Stained glass was not the only glass art offered at Design Lite Studio. Fused glass art was used to design the glass in the fairy door.
Friends and family members make comments about my putting way too much time and detail into the build. Maybe this is so, but I will continue on with the dream until I have it completed!
