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)
