All the houses are carved out of cottonwood bark, the thicker the bark the more detail I can put into a carving. The tree itself has to be dead for a few years before the bark can be pulled off, It is then pressure washed, dried and the lose bark removed. And now the lay out and carving process begins!

I've seen many replicas of these fairy houses but even three years on, I've never any that come anywhere close to as well made, inventive, beautiful or magical as these ones. Your work continues to inspire just as you always did.

Best wishes to all the family at this time of year.
