This house was a special request from a client for their young daughter*. This uber-sweet little cottage has a jaunty tilt to the entire design which is accented by the needle-felted roof. Twig-latticed porthole style windows add charming details to the single piece of White Birch bark which forms the body of the entire cottage. A tiny tower has been added to enhance the magical feeling and it too has a matching, felted roof. The tiny, working door is made from a piece of Yellow Birch bark and has an antique glass bead “doorknob”. The interior is fully finished with handmade Mulberry paper which has been infused with rose petals. Lots of silk flowers and sweet ribbons gave the interior a decidedly girly feel. Lighting for this house was a single, battery-powered tea light that magically changes colors when it was on.

*Please note: at this time, and with regret, the artist is unable to accept any individual or personal requests for a custom-made faerie house sculpture. Houses are now individually made and sold exclusively thru the artist’s website directly to collectors. Some small additions to such houses may be possible for the buyer that would have meaning to the buyer or the intended recipient. Such additions could include special flowers, shells or crystals, framed art inside the house, or an inscribed name of the new owner which would make the house extra-personal for the buyer.
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.
