My wife asked me to make a few fairies for the sculpture garden and hide them so kids could find them. I did that last year and now she wants toadstools! I hadn’t really done a lot with fairies in the past but I did like the wings and size aspects. The idea of combining one of the flowers I sometimes make and a figure with wings, had quite a few possibilities but I had done a few flying pieces for the exhibition and I thought that this composition was acceptable. She..( in my case they are always she)… is quite graceful and perhaps magic will happen.
