Fairytale cottage: raku kurinuki spirit & incense house
Here is a wonderful, whimsical, and magical raku spirit house. Or fairy house! It feels very calm and very natural, and helps me to remember the world beyond our human insanity. It's carved in the kurinuki technique and would be beautiful as an incense holder for small cones or short sticks, as a shrine or altar decoration, or just to hold some precious treasures.
The base of the house is 6.9cm long by 5cm wide and 3.4cm tall. With the roof on, the whole thing is 7.6cm long by 5.8cm wide and approximately 8cm tall. The roof lifts off easily. If you wish to burn incense inside, please be aware that the smoke will drift out gently through the chimney and from under the roof too as it's not a tight seal and the chimney has a small hole! I find it a lovely, calming effect, but if you want a cottage where the chimney has a stronger smoke effect, please contact me.
(Never leave burning candles or incense unattended!)
This spirit cottage is made of stoneware, glazed with non-toxic glaze, and raku fired for the beautiful effects of flame and smoke. It can live outside if it's in a dry place, but I would recommend bringing it indoors during winter as it's not frost proof.
*Please note that all spirit houses are sent insured!*
Through my work, I hope to bring a little nature, peace, gentleness, and spirit to the world. I make all of my pieces entirely by hand with natural materials.
