This “Coming Soon” section is for popular items that I normally carry in my shop but are currently sold out. This piece is in the creation process - either drying, in the kiln, being glazed, or cooling. The stages take time so please expect it to arrive in 1-2 weeks.
Please note: Each sculpture is made individually and no two are alike. The piece you'll receive may not look exactly like the one photographed – color, texture, and forms will vary slightly.

Spice up your garden with this fun Wild Hair Bird garden stake! An original Hadley Clay Studio “Stick in the Muds”© sculpture. This Wild Hair Bird is a contemporary, organic, and fun way to add intrigue to your home and garden.

For mounting in gardens, large plant pots, lawns, flowerbeds, use indoor or outside. A unique and beautiful garden ornament; the perfect gift for any garden lover, as a hostess gift, or housewarming present.

It measures about 6" at the longest points and fits snug on the included 3-foot marine-grade aluminum rod. Sculpted in durable clay body then glazed and oxidation fired to over 2000 degrees. Sculptures are frost-proof, fade-proof, and rustproof.

Frequently asked questions about hadleyclay

I take orders on first-come-first-served basis. Considering the time my ceramic process takes, the volume of orders I have in queue, and the care that I give each individual piece it's about 4-6 weeks to complete.
Yes! All of the mugs are created using non-toxic, food-safe materials.
The mugs are standard sized, holding 14 fluid ounces. A "jumbo" upgrade is available in my shop to translate any design to an 18 ounce mug.
All mugs are dishwasher safe. The colors will not scratch, peel or fade. With the exception of the 22K gold additions on specific mugs, they are microwave safe.
The nature of ceramics is fragile, as it can break if dropped or knocked against a hard surface.
All mugs include a kraft gift box. You may order gift wrap service to any item through the gift wrap listing in the shop.
I keep customers involved throughout the process and go to great lengths to make sure people get what they want.
If the coloring is not a perfect match I can touch it up and add it to my next glaze firing free of charge.
If the issue is not on my end (e.g. you changed your mind about the photo you gave me or you ordered the flower crown variation but didn't want the flower crown after all.. etc.) I charge a remake fee of $20, the labor is free it just covers the cost of materials, overhead (power used to fire the kiln), and restock of unwanted inventory.
