I have two ceramic totems in my garden, and quite a number of pieces waiting for me to create another totem this summer. These two serve dual purpose of decorating the garden, and protecting my dear Davidii involucrata (dove tree) when I drag the hose around the garden :
This little face planter rests in a shady spot in my garden :
This lantern was originally planned for the garden, but after so many hours creating it, and a number of people warning me not to take a chance leaving it out in my garden, I still have it inside the kitchen. But I am still considering finding it a place in the garden one day. At least for a party.
I have made a number of ceramic vessels and plates decorated with leaf imprints. I love the textures. This one is decorated in maple leaves :
This soda fired jug was also decorated in maple leaves.
These oakleaf hydrangea leaves were not from my garden, but made a beautiful platter.
This piece was decorated with leaves from my garden, and eventually will go back out into the garden, as part of a future totem :
I made two large ceramic masks - "tree men" - who adorn the inside of the post on my back deck. I wish I had photos to share, but am too lazy to download/email them from my phone to my computer. But here is one of the masks.
