One of my tiniest houses, this little sweetie was an experiment of sorts that happened to work out very well. Made from White Birch bark, but using the reversed golden brown side, this tiny structure can easily sit in the palm of your hand. The fully functional door opens up onto a tiny, sparkling Fairy bed fit for a princess. The oval latticed windows feature White Cedar twigs to give a leaded glass look. The door and roof are made from the bark of the Yellow birch and the pieces were specially selected to make good use of the natural lichens. The door also features an inlaid glass “window” made from a hand-blown Lamp-work bead. It also has a genuine Amethyst gem bead “doorknob” to allow big humans to easily open the door to peek inside at the sparkly bed and mint green wallpapers, handmade, of course.
The most dramatic aspect of this tiny house is the elegant “Golden Lotus” roof which is made from dried seed pods carefully arranged to mimic the shape of a water-lily or lotus flower. Tiny battery-powered LEDs are hidden within the “petals” of the flower and when turned on, the lighting is magically refracted and reflected thru the multitudes of antique faceted glass beads which are attached to the wired tendrils stretching out from under the main blossom and arched over the front entrance. The edge of the roofline is finished with specialty yarns and dyed wool which has been needle-felted into place to give the appearance of wild mosses and grass.
The house has a tiny footprint of just 4 x 4 inches and is approximately 6 inches tall. An exquisite little treasure.
This house is 100% hand-crafted by the artist and no other duplicate can or will ever be built. It is truly ONE of a kind.
This house is included in this gallery for people who enjoy seeing more details of individual house sculptures which have been sold in the past and now reside with their new collector/owners.
