About

The Enchanted World of Fairy Woodland is the heart and spirit child of John Curtis Crawford and Bridget Wolfe. The fairywoodland blog entries will be mostly by Bridget Wolfe.

John Curtis Crawford and Bridget Wolfe create doorways for the enchanted imagination to find its way to the Otherworld.  John’s Fairy House sculptures intrigue the curious psyche and Bridget’s tales lead the traveler to the open door.

JOHN CURTIS CRAWFORD is a maker of magical things from puppets to elaborate sculptures of wood and stone. Beginning as a puppeteer at age 12, his lifetime of work in the arts and entertainment industry has encompassed many disciplines. He has designed and constructed fantastical creatures and miniature habitats for stage, television, commercials, and feature motion pictures. His work has won numerous awards including one from the Cannes Film Festival for Special Effects.

John’s early training as a puppeteer honed his innate gift of bringing inanimate objects to life; his love of the natural world and of wild places led him through mystical doorways and his creations are the outgrowth of that marriage.  His unique sculptural technique animates his mystical and whimsical wood and stone structures. His sculptures and graphic images call forth the “intelligent energy” inhabiting every twig and stone and bring the wild places of the Otherworld to life in his work.

BRIDGET WOLFE is a teacher, writer, myth keeper, and storyteller, weaving stories whispered by winds and Fairy wings into the fabric of everyday lives. Her relationship with the mystical world began as a child and she has spent almost 30 years studying shamanism’s maps of the Otherworld. She has blended the teachings of medicine wheels and sacred ritual together with MA degrees in English and Clinical Psychology to create ceremonial retreats and rites of passage and has guided learning journeys to sacred sites in the Americas, England, and Ireland.

Bridget’s forays into the Otherworld have found expression through her love of language, first as an oral storyteller and more recently as a writer of mystical tales. In her collaboration with John Curtis Crawford, she has written fairy tale vignettes for more than 500 of John’s fairy house sculptures and graphic images.

    I often hear Mike Malloy read Bridget’s comments on the radio. I love to listen; where can I find these commentaries?

      Thanks for the question, Susan. I don’t have a place to post the commentaries I do for The Mike Malloy show – their political nature doesn’t seem appropriate for this blog. I’ll work on creating somewhere. In the meantime, if you email be through the fairywoodland.com site, I’ll send you a copy of the one Mike read last week.

      How wonderful to note another fan of Mike & Cathy Malloy radio. Hi Susan. I only recently found his program, but now I am addicted to it, as well as to Bridget’s fairy woodland. I will keep my ears especially perked up to catch your commentaries in the future, Bridget; so thankful for all you folks, and for the internet where I am able to meet up with you all online.

        Hello, Elizabeth, and welcome. I’m always delighted when someone finds the connection between the mystical/magical world and being a Truthseeker. The mystical world has its own truth. In any case, I’m glad you found The Mike Malloy Show and happy to make your acquaintance. If you’re on twitter, you can follow me @FairyWolfe – it’s an eclectic mixture of things that relate to the environment, the feminine and the magical.
        Bright Blessings,
        Bridget

    My friend and colleague Kay sent me the link. Pagan at heart, Celtic by DNA, long a celebrator of the “off equinox” times, I’m pleased to be introduced to Faeries….I never “got it” about fairies (as in fairy tales), but now I see! Thank you.

      Welcome to the Realm! Although I suspect you’ve really been here for a long time.
      Bright Blessings.

    I am wondering where I can hear the Mike Malloy show.

    • October 31, 2011 3:50 pm

      Hi Annie,
      I think he’s still carried on KTLK, 1150am in LA but the signal probably doesn’t reach to you. Best thing is to go to his website http://www.mikemalloy.com/ and stream on the web. I haven’t had time to write anything for the show for quite a while but will again in the future. He still covers items that you don’t hear anywhere else. All the best, Bridget

    Hi ! This is the first time I’ve visited your site, and I thoroughly enjoy it! Your Winter Soltice piece really rings true to me, and I’m a firm believer in the fairy realm. I love the darkness – I find it quiet and very peaceful. So, thanks – I’m certainly planning on being a “regular”!
    Love and Light, Linda

    I am not responding to anything you have written, I am just letting you know your website/blog have inspired me and brightened my dark winter day. For that, I thank you and want to continue to know about your work.

      What a kind and truly touching thing to say. Your comment inspires me to keep writing and doing my work. I thank you. Bright Blessings, Bridget

    My granddaughter asked me if I believed in fairy’s… I said of course…. Heard you on Malloy and am glad I found your site here… Peace.

      Thanks for keeping the magic in your Granddaughter alive. And thanks for listening to and supporting Mike Malloy – I am grateful every night for his voice on the air.

    Brigit your observations are exquisite. I’ve recently created a blog to share knowledge of the elementals from all over the world secretlifeoffairies.wordpress.com
    Shoshana Avree told me of you. There’s a passage I’d like to use on the fairy star and the Pleiades – I will credit this back to you and your blog if you feel comfortable with this. In Love and Light
