The fairy tree idea came about when I was trying to come up with an idea for a Halloween project for an online polymer clay contest. I came across a certain picture in one of my Harry Potter books.  (Yes, I'm thirty-something, and I love Harry Potter!)  Anyway, this looked like something I would really enjoy recreating in clay and you can see the result below:

I enjoyed making this piece so much that I decided to try other interpretations of the same technique and the fairy trees were born.  I've made up stories about some of them but most are open to your imagination!  Enjoy!
