The past week has been a blur of new creations... I can't wait to share them with you, but it may take a little longer as we have a few more days of good weather coming up and I plan to be out there every possible minute being creative. I have several new spirals, leaf orbs and Faerie Houses all with the rich and vibrant influences of the season.
For now, here is just one... a lovely little cottage with walls made from maple leaves individually stitched onto a willow framework. The roof is made from birch bark with willow twig trimming and an acorn topper. The doorway is framed by a root I found up in the mountains... the door itself is also birch bark, with a moon window... a perfect little retreat for a Faerie Tea party ! Stay tuned for more new work coming very soon !!

Being an Autumn girl, I think this is one of my favorites so far! Such a cheerful little spot for a spot of tea.

Sally,

Would you mind if I did a little piece with pictures about you on my blog? I've often done brief posts about writers or artists. Tonight I sent some of your pictures to friends, and then it occured to me that I ought to write something about you.

I've often wondered if Andy Goldsworthy played in our lake, as we got up one morning and found three stone creations rising out the lake. He did a project near Albany, and he might well have stopped off.

Welcome to the enchanted world of Environmental art and Faerie Houses sculptures created by Sally J Smith. Here you will find photos of the artist's unique art-forms and hear some of the stories from behind the scenes as she shares with you her creative process.
