FRENCH FARMHOUSE (1)
Tucked quietly into the rolling hills and fields of lavender in the south of France are these centuries-old farmhouses and cottages.
Stony and rustic, their simple beauty has stood the test of time with a charm and elegance that still inspires us today. These little clay representations mimic the moss- and mineral-laden white stone facades and the terra cotta rooftops with purely organic, unpainted clay. I hope these pieces bring your memories and fantasies of the French countryside to life.

Each "maison" is handbuilt in my atelier in Europe. The only material I use is a mineral and natural cellulose fiber clay that hardens strongly and naturally. This non-toxic clay, in white, ochre and terra cotta, is from the coast of Spain. All textures and rustic effects are achieved only with this clay.
This purchase includes one (1) French Farmhouse as shown in photo 1. Sculpture measures approximately 4.5 cm (1 3/4 inches) wide.
