A Note From Janet
Welcome to my world…
A little dream come to life!
I have always loved fairies. As a little girl listening to my beautiful mom telling me stories I would imagine these beautiful creatures in my mind. Each of my fairies are here to spread abundant love, joy and happiness. I truly hope you enjoy them as much as I have had in creating them.

There is a secret mystical quality to our vessels. We are so happy with our new work. We have been making wooden boxes and vessels for over 40 years, our main concentration for most of our career were hinged boxes and vessels out of exotic hardwoods. We were feeling really bad about using rainforest wood so now that we are using found wood we are doing something good for the environment. We are published in over 14 books an numerous magazine articles; we are in museum and corporate collections all over the world.
All our vessels are made of found wood from storms; we cure the wood for about a year sometimes putting it in a compost pile to spault the wood, beautiful black patters are brought out when there is a fungus in the wood.
Jay is fantastic wood turner. He turns these pieces into hollow form wooden vessels and bowls. Then he gives them to me a blank canvas. I have my background in illustration so why not treat the wood like a canvas. I carve each finial mostly birds and other beautiful images from our garden, our inspiration! Then I use pigments on the woods with our own formula. Then I do Pyrography and paint the pieces and to most of these add a little magic. So if our work makes you smile and you feel good that’s our goal and we have made you happy!
