Teeth Fairies

  Presenting the Teeth Fairies!  They came about for a couple of reasons.  One is that my parents, the forest dwellers, saved this old chewed up antler for me.  Being well aware of my fixations, they thought I'd like it.  What would have chewed up the bone like that!? What kind of teeth did this?  Why, fairies with gnarly little fairy teeth of course!  So the antler chilled in my studio for a while, developing ghosts in my imagination.  While that was happening, my studio neighbor, who is a glass worker asked if there was something we could work on together.  I said, how would she feel about making tiny glass teeth?  So we went back and forth and while I was working on fairies, she was working on perfecting the toothing process.

Leprechaun -Part 7/7

This is the last of a 7-piece series of illustrations that I completed for The Woodland Faerie Trail of Achill Island in Ireland.  They are printed on wooden plaques and scattered throughout fairy houses and lovely, mossy, ivy-ed trees.

The Leprechaun.  A 2-3 foot, red-haired, green-clad, tri-cornered creature.  Crafty, and clever, he frequents our fairy stories with pots of gold and rainbows.  And like most fairies, he loves the whisky drink and bit of dance and craic.  Beyond that the Leprechaun is, by trade,  a cobbler of shoes, but only one at a time.

That's it for this series of Irish fairies.  No promises, of course!
