Winter cottage: raku kurinuki spirit & fairy incense house
Here is a very beautiful raku spirit cottage (or fairy house!) decorated with carved flowers and vines. This one is full of the magic of winter, of starry skies, sparkling frosts, and warm, cosy fires. It's carved in the kurinuki technique and would be beautiful as an incense holder for small cones or short sticks, as a shrine, altar, or seasonal decoration, or just to hold some precious treasures.
The base of the house is 6.8cm long by 6cm wide and 5.6cm tall. With the roof on, the whole thing is 7.7cm long by 6.8cm wide and approximately 11cm tall. The roof lifts of easily.
(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.
