The Iron Fairies are a collection of cast iron sculptures by Australian artist Ashley Sutton.
The fairies slumber in a state of suspended animation until they’re brought above ground, sprinkled with magic fairy dust, and touched by the first light of the morning sun.
Only then are they set free to roam the world, making wishes come true.
If you bring home an iron fairy, you must awaken your new friend also, by following the instructions that arrive with your cast iron sculpture.
Each fairy has a name, the wings of a certain insect, and a poem that tells you what kind of fairy she is.
You’ll find that some of them have a rusty sort of look and some are more blue or green.
Blue fairies are the naughty ones—so look out!
Eventually The Iron Fairies will all develop a beautiful patina of natural rust, whether you give them a home indoors or out.
Each Fairy comes in a personalised bag containing a certificate of authenticity, information about the fairy and fairy dust.
