A darling little porcelain house figurine landscaped with a little bush and ivy. And like so many of the houses here, in rural Sussex County, NJ it has just a little 'sag' to it. It has a brown tile roof and a golden brown door. I love the round window on this piece! The unglazed matte surface of the white porcelain makes a nice contrast with the areas of glossy glaze.

Completely hand-formed without the use of molds - each house is unique. I used common household objects to create textures and details. All of my mini buildings are sized to look lovely in a terrarium, planter or even in a fish tank (lead-free glaze ensures it won't harm your fish!). Since they are proportionate to each other, they make terrific neighborhoods together - as you can see in the last photo.

Made from warm white, porcelain clay. Fired twice in my electric kiln to 2200 degrees F.

This one is about 2" tall.


My inspiration...

Lake Mohawk, in Sparta, New Jersey is a beautiful, old lake community with uniquely styled building dating as far back at the 1920's - it is also the place I call home. With inspiration from the Adirondack style homes, rustic cabins,German Baronial houses and cute lake cottages as well as the sagging old farms from neighboring towns in Sussex County, NJ: I have created this series of miniature porcelain buildings.

A little more about Lake Mohawk - The buildings [and homes have been] placed on the New Jersey and National Register of Historic Places. The district qualified because of its unique architecture, a style which has been called "Lake Mohawk Tudor," a fanciful amalgamation of Tudor, English Cottage, and German Baronial styles, as well as structures in the Vernacular style. Lake Mohawk Tudor buildings employ half timbering, variegated slate roofs, gable roofs, stucco siding, decorative brick and stone work, among other interesting architectural elements.
