you do not want to listen to "Fernando",",
When I was looking for a very special present for my husband's 70th birthday, I found an advertisement from a ceramic artist in our local newspaper, she among other things builds models of small houses. There it was: the idea for a very special present: A "copy" of our old house.
I contacted the artist and ordered a "Copy of Spurvely".
artist of course asked for photos and explanations about the house,
what colour is was, where the windows and doors are located etc. So I
found several photos I have shot through the years, and send them to her.
You can see some pictures of the pottery house here.
We think it is a very nice work, everything is very accurate and correct, even some of the flowers growing along the house can bee seen, and the very small black dot close to the window at the right on the photo "The house seen from northwest" is shown. The black dot is the air-condition from the kitchen, and the small grey square at the left of the door at the photos with the cats, is a small box containing the senders for our outdoor weather-stations.
If you look very closely at the windows you will notice, that some of the panes seems blue and some seems yellow. It's because some of the windows are "open" so we can put some light - small candles or small bulbs - inside the house, and the light will shine out through the "open" windows.
The house is placed in a central place in our dining-room, and we are pleased every day by looking at it.
The house was "built" by Hanne at Radbjerg Keramik. You can find her home-page here.
If you should need a nice and special gift for some special occasion, I am sure she will be able to make it for you just as you like it, you will find her mail-address etc. at her homepage.
