After sculpting the first fairy tower, I wanted to make one for myself (as opposed to for my Etsy shop). And I wanted mine to be a bit smaller because I want to put it into a fairy garden in a round shallow terra cotta pot.
I enjoy making the pie crust roofs. And then with this one, I decided to add “tree trunks” for roof supports on either side of the front door. I added a triangle of “branches” at the peak of the roof which will hold a large glass marble once the tower is fired and glazed. I also think that I’ll hang a “lantern” on a branch to the side of the door. Once the branches were there, I naturally had to add birds.
The “ribbon” over the door says “ILLUSION.”
