I like to make series of objects with little to no practical use. These came from memories of the snow village my mom used to set up every Christmas. Of course, these look nothing like those simple rectangular houses with pitched roofs and red cellophane windows. They do have little arches carved in the back in case I get it together to set them up with a string of Christmas lights, a single bulb illuminating the windows. Tacky? Oh yes. There are three more waiting to be fired, and more to come until my last bag of terra cotta clay runs out.
Like my little houses, these take obssessive hours to make. Each one is made of two pinched bowls stuck together and smacked with a popsicle stick. It's obssessive. I could seek help.
This is meant to hang over a door to prevent evil spirits from entering. Though I'm not sure if it would prevent any of them from exiting, In either case, it's a good thing I don't believe in the protective power of objects hanging over doors, though I like the idea. This is one object that won't turn into a series because I don't think I can make a similar thing.
