Description

I made Fairy House Lantern on the potter’s wheel from stoneware clay without a bottom. Then I altered the form from the inside out and attached a floor.  I also made the hat roof for Fairy House Lantern on the wheel, attaching it when it was still quite soft so that it swoops naturally. Next I create texture with a meat tenderizing hammer.  Finally, I cut a door (this one is in front) and pierce the body.

I don’t pierce with a stencil. I work intuitively, following the form and the feelings I have about the lantern’s personality.

The lantern is fired, stained with a red iron oxide, and then fired again.  The second firing is to 2200 degrees F.

Fairy House Lantern is safe to use outside as a garden feature, on a patio table, or hung in a tree.  Use it indoors as well, on a dining room or side table, in the entryway or bath.

Wired door accommodates tealight or votive candles.  Wire hanger handle. 9″High
