SPECIFIC LEAF DETAILS:
Leaf type: Hosta
Relative size for this leaf type is: Medium
This piece measures: 11 1/2 x 9 1/2 inches
Finished in the following colors: A mix of greens with bright gold and copper.

Note: Bright daylight shows up as more green (photos of the empty leaf), overcast appears a bit more bluish in color (see photos with seed and water).

All of my leaves are cast using a LIVE leaf, are entirely hand-painted and are each TOTALLY one-of-a-kind!

Each bowl comes with a 20" pole so you can position it above your flowers or shrubs!

THE PROCESS:

This feeder/bath bowl was cast using a live leaf in fine cement which captures every detail thus creating a "fossil."

It is then painted in a variety of paints and stains and then sealed in a clear sealer which creates a glass-like surface to show off the colors as well as protect it from UV and water.

Many finish colors can appear differently in bright sunlight versus shadow and indoor versus outdoor light. I have attempted to bring the intricate leaf detail to life.

Each bird feeder/bath bowl sits on a 20" pole (included). The pole can be positioned above your flowers, shrubs or in a little corner of its own. Fill it with bird seed, water or glass gems and votive candles. Other decorative options include water with floating flowers, or even fruit as a butterfly feeder!

SHIPPING:

Shipping for this leaf will be via Parcel Post due to depth of bowl and elevated sides.

Parcel post will arrive in 5-7 days anywhere in the continental U.S.

I usually ship the same day that I receive an order. Sizing indicates the largest dimension for correct shipping (all rounded to 1/2").

Included with every leaf is a bag of birdseed, gems and candles along with instructions and a pole. As a special note, I NEVER include an invoice or price tag with a leaf purchase.

MULTIPLE ITEM SHIPPING:

If you would like to purchase multiple leaves, contact me for a custom shipping quote! Some leaves will fit well (and ship safely) in a box together, others may not...

PAYMENT FORMS / MULTIPLE ITEM DISCOUNTS:
