Winter’s here and tree spirits are slumbering. Here is a quick peek at a dryad as she sleeps in her Maple leaf.
Summer is coming to an end and once more we begin to turn inward here at Elysian Field Originals with an eye to nesting for the winter. Leaves are already beginning to fall and I’ve collected quite a few from the area here in Rhode Island, as well as Maine. The recent hurricane, Irene, wreaked [...]
Elysian Fields Etsy Miss Mouse loves Halloween! As I sit and sculpt she patiently sits and watches squeaking away about being too small to join in the Halloween festivities, but wanting to dress up. I felt so badly for her that I stitched together a wee witch hat of softest ultra suede dusted with black [...]
Spring has been a busy time here in the woods. Much time has been spent outdoors getting the yard ready for summer. Planting, raking, and just enjoying the birds and my pet chickens keeps me pretty busy. I do hope you are all well and enjoying the “roller coaster” weather patterns that Mother Nature has [...]
I thought I’d share a new little piece I’ve been working on. It’s a faerie child wrapped in a maple leaf and asleep in an oak leaf cradle. The faerie is 3″ long and was sculpted using Kato clay with Genesis heat set oils for added color. I really prefer this clay now for [...]

Old Man Winter is really giving us all a run for our money this year, and me? I’d like to step outside and give him a good kick in the snowballs and tell him to take a hike!! How about you? In between taking care of my grandsons, and dodging snowflakes I’ve been mixing new [...]
This is a commissioned piece that I just completed for a client in Arizona. She requested a Red Maple leaf with a 14 kt gold bail. I almost want to keep her for myself, lol.
A unique blend of Nouveau and Nature! This tiny art nouveau style bas relief of a tree nymph is set into an imprint of a 2″ Norway Maple leaf from Rhode Island. Both are sculpted using Kato clay. The leaf has been colored with inks and mica powders and the fairy nymph is colored using [...]
Nature’s beauty! I am really enjoying using gemstones for healing and well being with my leaf spirits lately, and although this could be worn as a pendant, I have transformed this lovely imprint of a Burr Oak, also called Mossycup Oak, as an ornament. Fashion forward fairies or renn folk could do double duty and [...]keep looking »
