The Basskett Hound Planter/Basket

This obliging Basset is an all-purpose basket for home & garden. Bassket Hound is life-size at 35 inches from nose to tail by 20 inches tall and 13 inches wide at leg spread. Very life-like with angled head & neck, offset rear legs and contoured body. If he were any more life-like, he'd have fleas!

Garden Goose Planter/Basket

The Canada goose is ubiquitous and beautiful. This classic planter is slightly larger than life-size at 28 x 19 x 12 inches. Caution: do not deploy it near a wild bird flyway---unless you want visiting flocks to hover about!

  • Authentic trimmings of brown, gray, black and white

  • Artist signed/dated/numbered.

  • A classic...for all seasons and reasons!

The Great Blue Bloom'n Heron

Our Guild is driven to replacing every Pepto Bismol pink Flamingo in America with our stately, majestic herons. They are life-sized at 36 inches diagonally from beak to tail, 9 inches wide, and stand 44 inches above ground. Sculpt and trimmed so life-like, little fish and frogs flee at their sight!

  • Contoured body of 1 inch feather-textured cedar

  • Head and neck of 2 Adirondack pine

  • Layered wings, pipe legs and adjustable webfoot

  • Spectacular for docks, poolside and pond landscaping.

Use the heron indoors by inserting its pipe legs into our 12 x 12 x 9 high triangular display base made of natural cedar with painted marsh grass. Indoor heron uses: plants, towels for bath or sauna; bath soaps, etc.

On legs and lovable---and about as close to having a real pet pelican as you'll ever get. Contoured cedar body with layered wings. Caution: At ocean-side settings it will attract pelican pals.

  • Truly life-sized at 24 x 22 x 11 inches

  • Life-like trimmings of brown, gray, white and coral

  • Artisan scuplt head with button eyes

Potting Pelican Planter/Basket

  • Academically trimmed in brown, white, green, yellow, blue and black
