Finished Fairy Houses

Some of the fairy houses are out of the kiln, I’m quite pleased with the way they turned out. They are ready for the fairies to move in. They are handmade and built individually so no two houses are the same.

These are first of my fairy houses, I plan to make lots more. Different sized homes for all sorts of fairy folk.

Fairy Houses

Since I started making fairy doors two years ago, I have constantly been asked “Do you do houses as well?”.

So last month, while the girls and I were playing with clay, I started building. Four hours later I was still building, – the girls had got bored and were off playing something else – but I just kept going.

Three days later I had four fairy houses and quite a substantial fairy pub.

It seems fairy’s favor houses with turrets and little windows.

I just started building…and adding…

…and playing…and tweaking…

…and a bit more here… and it needs another window here… and a chimney and some more tiles.

Before I knew it I had a small fairy village! And three days had disappeared!!!

I’ve used my fairy door press molds to get a lot of detail in a small area. Then I cut around the door so it can be opened a little. This should look good with a light inside.

The single tower only took two and a half hours to make. But the big two story pub (at the top) I finally finished almost nine hours after I started it.

The fairy houses are now loaded into the kiln ready to be fired.
