38" tall x 11" wide (bottom cactus/flower)

big blue bottom ball is 6½"

others 3-5"

These original ceramic Totems are hand-built from low-fire clay using slab construction. They are fired to a bisque temperature, then glazed and fired again to a colorful waterproof finish that will not fade in sunlight. For the most part they are weatherproof, with the exception of hail. I have several that have been outside in my garden for more than 3 years, “planted” under a huge pine tree. While they have been buried under snow & rain, I’m sure that the tree has sheltered them from the hail. **that said, I would recommend bringing them inside for inclimate seasons relative to your area.


They are sold and shipped unassembled -- as a set of pieces that you can display in a variety of settings, center rod is not included, available at most home improvement or hardware stores.

Outdoor installation -- drive a section re-bar or tomato stake deep into the ground and stack the pieces (you can stack them the way that I have in the photo or make your own arrangement)


Indoor (or patio) installation --  the pots that I used for the display photos are filled with concrete around a garden-variety tomato stake (easily obtained from any home improvement store)
