Leaf Sculpture for Pet Garden Memorial
A peaceful and lovely leaf bird bath or garden decoration for a pet memorial by Malloryville Pottery.
This vibrant bird bath leaf sculpture was formed after a live leaf found locally, and measures 13" long by 9" wide. Each leaf I create is unique, with a different leaf used for each along with hand sculpting and glaze variations.
Crafted from a high fire warm brown stoneware clay, the leaf is sturdy for outdoor use.
The glaze on this piece is a wonderful turquoise green, mottled with splashes of creamy white.
The edges of the leaf ripple upwards slightly, enough to capture falling rain for visiting birds, butterflies, and toads. Use this sculpture as a functional work of art in your pet's garden memorial resting place. Nestle this leaf among the ground cover in your flower bed, place among the stones in your rock garden, or place it upon a pedestal such as an iron stand or cut tree stump.
