I drew the little sketch seven years before I made the fairy. I loved the design, but I couldn’t work out how to frame her. If she was simply stood on the lawn pulling out the dandelion, you wouldn’t be able to see her very well. I was at a garden show when I came across some giant meter-tall plant pots. I instantly imagined potty stood on the rim which frames her perfectly.
