The Kitchen development began many years ago with a design process that spanned cities and about two years of discussion. During that time, a potter friend offered to help Destiny faeries make tiles that might be used in the kitchen. Chris Parris taught about a dozen NYC faeries how to prepare the clay, cut the tile shape, and paint with a slip glaze. The tiles were once-fired in Chris's studio.

 

Jim Jackson and Paulie used most of these tiles along with a bunch of decorative tiles donated by Lex to design decorative insert panels. These beautiful and expressive panels help bring more hands into the making of the kitchen. Some faeries describe the Kitchen as a great big spell in which each faerie adds their vibe into the clay, strawbale or wood-cutting of this structure.  

 

Other tile work is also featured in the shower and on the kitchen window sill.
