FAE FACTORY ALTARS: Altars are sacred spaces for spiritual practices and tools to be held. We take authentic wine boxes, beautifully distressed and well traveled, and turn them into gorgeous sacred cabinets. They are vessels for what is magical and good to come through and be held. This is an incredible creation, handmade and customized with old world intaglios and components. The intaglios are actual porcelain plaster replicas from as far back as the 1600s, which depict ancient mythical and spiritual stories. We also use decorative keys and keyholes that symbolize the opening of one beautiful world to another. ...No two will ever be the same. You may have various iron-branded symbols and illustrations throughout. Each Fae Factory Altar is enormously cared for and beautifully distressed with its unique life journey, ready for you to make amazing spiritual manifestations with!
Our Altars are hand painted, sanded, layered and carefully constructed. They are gently rustic, earthy and strong. Doors are handmade and constructed as well. Altars can be made vertical or horizontal. (See photos for examples.) If you have any preferences, please feel free to let us know.

All of this art is the culmination of a man who became bedridden and housebound for many years. Hours upon hours were spent alone and painfully ill, leaving the mind with only one option for survival.
Dr Franky Dolan went into a daily monk-like meditation, every single day for years. Overwhelming visions and messages were so strong, he could barely contain them in his body. So his partner, Randy, brought him paints and clay one day, and said, "Create your visions."
With no formal art training, Franky looked down at his hands, and began to sculpt and paint these psychic impressions, all from his bed or even on the floor. From this, they started Fae Factory, and use all sales to support treatment, outreach and advocacy.
