Guardian of the Forest
One of my most favorite pieces to pour, this Guardian of the Forest can be used as a planter and - as seen in the last photo from my own yard - a toad home. This is a two-part piece, in that from the mouth down he is open in the back, and from the mustache up, enclosed and suitable for planting. He comes with four small holes in the back (as shown) for hanging and draining, and a larger hole in the bottom of the back that can be used to access and clean the bottom should you have toads or birds that make a home.
This Green Man is glazed with non-toxic glazes, and can be cleaned with warm soapy water or even run through the dishwasher.

I learned ceramics like an old-school apprentice, at the feet of my grandmother who had a studio in the 1950s and 1960s, and many of the pieces I make are from now-vintage molds that she bought then. My pieces are unique, hand painted, and proudly made in my own home studio.
