OOAK Miniature Rabbit by Celidonia

I wanted to sculpt an Angel, for Christimas, in the moment in which he alights on the Earth, touching lightly. Angels can have any appearence, and the nearest to my feeling has long hears and a star-cotton-tail.

But while I was sculpting, I realised that wings was redundant and I had to remove them. Maybe true Angels don't need wings, because the energy that enable them flying is the same that - as they went past - enable the seeds hidden in earth and people sprouting and blooming.
Feeling the touch of this energy is my good wish for the New Year.

Workshop Miniaturitalia - Waking Rose Fairy

This Little Fairy is just woken up! She opened only one eye, because the other is still dreaming...
Do you like to learn sculpting her? I'll teach it in my Workshop at Miniaturitalia , the Miniature and Dollhouse Show, next 7 February in Milan (Italy).

We'll study how to insert the opened eye, how sculpting the closed eye, the face, the arm and hand, petals and leaf.

I must admit, if I was a visitor, I would have a magic potion that multiplies twenty of me, to partecipate to all twenty workshops, because all they're wonderful!
I hope we'll see at the Show and you'll join us to give life to the little Waking Rose Fairy! :)

Fairies at Semenzaio di San Sisto

In a Sunday full of the last rays of the Autumn's Sun, some Fairies and me visited the Semenzaio di San Sisto, on the occasion of a mycological show.

Little Fairy with Leaf
There was enchanting mushrooms, in the wonderful Aranciera setting, and so beautiful plants in the Garden, but the youngest Fairy admired the red Titian painting of a Leaf, work of the Fairies that Fairies that live in that place.

Duck in a Pond at Semenzaio di San Sisto
On the square, not only Fairies lived there, Undines too must live there, because there was little ponds, where Mallards and Terrapins was playing...

Fairy among the grass
And while we was exploring the place, the eldest Fairy said that she saw one of them hidden among the feathers of a young Mallard.

Cat at Semenzaio di San Sisto
At the end of our tour, on the back way, a wonderful Black Cat said us goodbye, admiring with us the wonderful view, with the Pines in the background.
Rome is full of magic places... maybe is for this reason that Cats and Fairies love it. And I with them :)

Hoppy Halloween, Hoppy Birthday!

Halloween Rabbit
Pumpkins kept the Summer's promise, growing large and orange. Leaves put on their most flaming evening dress, to dance with the Wind... and we too are in a holiday mood. Celidonia's Mice, Rabbits, Robins and Fairies, we all are getting ready to welcome the most Magic Night of the Year. Humans named it in many way, in the course of time and minds: Samain, Lemuria, Halloween, Vigilia di Ognissanti. But we unpretentious souls like only following the course of Nature and we won't lock it in a name. We only love celebrate it, beyond the Doors of Time and Space. And singing, in the Heart's Language, without words:
Goodbye Summer, thanks for yours presents gave to Autumn... We'll miss you!
Welcome Autumn, thanks for your sweet return... We missed you!
As soon as the darkness falls, we'll put a candle out of the window, to light the path, so no one will lose.
And to celebrate - in the No-Time Night - the first Birthday of this our new blog, too. Would you light it with us?

Thanks again to the kind Rosita, I knew that Arturo tv published on-line, in their website, two of the ten lessons I gave for the Faidate program a few years ago - They are just an excerpt, only in Italian language, I'm sorry. For those who couldn't see the video on tv, here the links: Elf in the Tulip and Sunflower Necklace.

Welcome Autumn Fairy

The Leaves are falling in the Wood, and there is a Little Fairy that tries to catch them in full flight... can you see her?

She is an Autumn Fairy, but she is just a baby, so she doesn't paint in gold the Leaves, together her Sisters, she just play with them!

She plays on the more Ancient Tree of the Wood - with his Branches and Soft Moss He take care of her  - but She want to go and see the Human World...

So I'm creating a play-display for her, so that she doesn't feel too alone and she'll always plays with her favourite Leaf... I'll post new pictures soon!

A Fairy Sweet Pea

Walking in the Wood with a Little Fairy as a fellow-traveller, I was inspired so much by a little Wild Sweet Pea...

fairy and a sweet pea flower
 It was so lovely and delicate! I tried to put that Beauty in the sculpting, so a Sweet Pea Fairy Jewel was born...

In the Language of Flowers, Sweet Pea means "Departure, I'm sorry I must leave"...

So I was sorry to leave that Enchanted Wood.
