La Picola Casa or The Little House is my Italian version of Petite Houses. Created from my own sketch converted into a pattern and crafted from recycled card board. I wanted to maintain the "not so perfect" edge of my original sketch and keep it from being "tippy". I enjoy this kind of challenge..."To make it perfectly imperfect!" All three Petite House works are layers of paper mache using my first Edition Harry Potter book...I'm sure that will be a crazy story someday but it is a fun detail added to this little art work.
Each Petite House includes a pull along Dog House or Poppy Cart. The entire work is encased in a lovely soft layer of beeswax. Other materials also include, wooden axles and wheels, watercolor and acrylic paints, pencil details and art clay crescent moon weather vane. Signed by the artist. Limited edition of 5. Due to the handcrafted nature of this item slight variations may occur. Measures approximately: 15 1/2" tall, 7" at widest bottom (includes wheels) 3" deep. Poppy Cart: 3" tall, 2 1/4" wide and 1 1/2" deep.
