Hand Made Fairy Doors
For years my children would run outside to our Fairy Tree. Sometimes they would find money or feathers or shiny stones. It was such a fun way to explore the front yard, make up stories and imagine what our fairies look like, where they live and what they do all day and night. The value of imaginary play is immeasurable.
These are the pottery fairy doors I have been making. I am exploring different colours and glazes as all fairies have their own taste and strong opinions. Invite fairies in to your home or garden by leaning a door against a tree, an outside or inside wall. Some of the doors have small holes so you may fix it in place, but please only do this with mature trees and not young saplings. Each door is hand made from clay and fired with a natural glaze, so each is different with its own character and imperfections.
No plastic here, each door comes wrapped in a cloth bag made from up-cycled jeans and recycled paper.
Remember only fairy folk can open the door. Will yours be claimed by a fairy, gnome, pixie, or perhaps an elf?
