Irish Fairy Cottages discovered at TITANIC Museum Attraction
Fabled fairies living in Irish folklore and fantasy make TITANIC Museum Attraction their home. These enchanted fairy cottages pay tribute to the 187 Irish on board the ship and will be visible to visitors throughout the month of March.
“While the wee builders remain invisible to humans, proof of their presence can be clearly seen in the enchanting, whimsical dwellings they’ve planted throughout the ship. No two are alike, each have their own name and unique features. However, the ones with realistic architectural elements still stand with one foot in reality and the other in a fairytale,” explains Mary Kellogg-Joslyn, President/COO and co-owner.
Jeanne Waters-Hill, founder of Touché, preeminent Missouri Design Studio and designated mortal designer of the mythological Titanic cottages, says the design process for this project was especially challenging. “I had to put on my sculptor’s hat, then think about it, research it and tap into 45 years of experience until an image slowly emerged. All in all, it took about 50 to 60 hours to build one cottage from development, construction to installation,” says Waters-Hill.
The TITANIC Museum Attraction in Pigeon Forge is open daily at 9 am. Advance reservations are required. Call (800) 381-7670 or visit www.titanicattraction.com. Masks are required.
