I followed her into the night, along the garden path to the edge of the forest. The cool mud felt good between my toes, and the smell of jasmine on the breeze was intoxicating. I stopped when I saw her standing in a moon beam, her pale skin luminescent, her graceful hands outstretched and holding up the ends of her beaded gown. I tried to memorize every detail so that I could do a sketch and sculpture of her likeness. She allowed me a moment to look upon her, and in my mind I... heard her voice like a tinkling of bells. "My name is Cerridwen." She said with a smile as she spread her luna moth wings and flew off into the night. Although I would have liked to spend more time with her, I felt lucky to have been given a glimpse into her beautiful moonlit world. I was enchanted by the night blooming flowers as I squished my feet deliciously into the earth with each step toward the porch. This time, I would be the one leaving a trail of muddy footprints up to my sketch book.

When spring blossoms begin to fade as the summer months near, there is always one faerie who just can't wait for autumn to arrive. I call her Pippilotta for her red hair and spray of freckles across her nose and cheeks. I met her one afternoon when I had just finished making a tiny pair of socks for the Alice in Wonderland sculpture I was working on. I took a break from my sewing table, and when I returned the socks were gone, and standing there in the windowsill was a mischievous fairy wearing them! The striped knee highs looked so perfect on her that I let her keep them. As she flew away in a cloud of pixie dust, I hoped I would see her again so that I could sketch her.

Pippilotta makes her debut on Etsy!

This sweet faerie is at her new home in the Hill Country
This graceful faerie can be spotted in the shady spot where the forest meets the edge of the pond behind my house. I call her Ophelia as I can tell she feels things very deeply and looks to have the sensitive heart of a poet. I was thrilled when she allowed me to sketch her one day while she was flitting about the mushrooms, enjoying the breeze on her wings and the dapple sunlight on her face. I created this sculpture based on that sketch, and I can only hope I captured her l...ook of peaceful contemplation.
This delicate beauty is hand sculpted in professional grade polymer clay over wire armature. Her subtle features are painting using acrylics. Her hand dyed honey blonde mohair is crowned with a brass colored wire and white paper flower head band. She is draped in an ivory cotton crepe dress. Her wings are hand sculpted of Instamorph modeling compound and painted to resemble the murky depths of her beloved pond in shades of green, black, and white.
