This time we interviewed Kim from Flying Frog Creations! Kim makes adorable little faerie doors, tiny vases and totally cute squids, all from polymer clay as well as some beautiful hand blown glass sculptures and handmade faerie wings. We asked her five questions:
1. Your beautiful faerie doors, how and when did you start making them?

My favorite works have all been blown glass sculptures, but the fairy doors are what keep me thinking about spring. I love all the great ideas customers come up with for the doors they want, and sometimes I replicate them because they are such great hits.
3. Where do you get your inspiration?
I love looking through DeviantArt to see what other artists are doing, and I have even started a group, “Fairy Doors and More,” for fairy-themed artisan crafts here on DA to bring Fairy artists together. The members of the group create many beautiful works that I have drawn inspiration from, but sometimes I just look outside for my ideas. Working close to nature has inspired a deep love within me for green grass and sunshine, fresh air and flowers. The changing moods and seasons of nature have so much to offer, and I try to take some of that and put it into my work.

I love the little people (except the borrowers – I wish they would stop stealing my buttons and candy!) and I hope we can coexist on this beautiful planet we share!
