I made Hanging Fairy House lantern on the potter’s wheel, using an iron bearing stoneware clay. A roof is thrown on the wheel and also attached. Putting the roof on before it gets too stiff allows the clay to droop and swoop naturally!
And once the form is complete, I cut the door and pierce the body with an exacto knife. I don’t use patterns. It’s all done intuitively.
After I bisque-fired Hanging Fairy house lantern, I fired it in my wood burning kiln for 32 hours up to 2400 degrees F.
Hang the fairy house from a hook in a tree. Set it on a patio table, along a spa, or on the deck.
You may also use the fairy house inside to add ambiance to any table, niche, or tub area.
Wired door accommodates tealight or votive candles.
