DRAGONFLY  CACTUS

One-of-a-kind colorful ceramic composition totem, exactly as photographed and ready to ship today.

This awesome totem is loaded! with a big prickly cacti, some polka-dots, stripey orbs, and topped off an aqua Dragonfly landing on a limey whimsical flower. The cactus has metal carpet tacks fired into the clay, they are wicked sharp.
measures --
20" tall x 9" wide (dragonfly)
cactus 10½" wide 
other balls 2-4"

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 as a set of pieces that you can display in a variety of settings. Center rod, pots and filler are 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 --  use a tomato stake (rubber coated hollow aluminum tomato stake, easily obtained from any garden center or home improvement store) plant it into a pot filled with sand or heavy rocks, its all about the weight so that your totem doesn't tip over (for the taller totems use concrete or welded rebar)
