All parts of this sculpture garden are handmade by me in high fired porcelain, except the living lichen. The lichen is real and prudently harvested from my woods. No pesticides touch the plants.

The five plant pots are in various sizes with a drainage hole at the bottom of each one. They are placed on a flat dish that I made from the same porcelain, but it is glazed with a subtle translucent fern green color coordinating beautifully with the color of the lichen.

You will receive this sculpture in the form of a kit containing:
1. Five unglazed plant pots ranging in size sequentially from a 2" diameter, the largest, down to 1" diameter, the smallest. The last photo shows the size of the largest pot.

2. A glazed amorphous shaped dish 6" long for the sculpture arrangement to catch excess water when misting or dousing.

3. A package of Reindeer Lichen to shape and plant in these pots - at your fancy.

4. A specially formulated packet of sandy soil. Place a small amount at the bottom of each pot.

Lichen are two different plants - algae and fungus - growing together in a symbiotic relationship. The epitome of true love. Lichen is alive and needs misting or dousing of water several times a week to keep it growing. Light from a north window, or several hours of indirect sunlight is also needed for the lichen to grow. Lichen is edible. Native Americans relied on the moss as a survival food in hard times. It is low in protein, and high in carbohydrates. It was also used in powder form to thicken soups.

When dry, the lichen is brittle and crunchy and in a state of dormancy but not dead.
When wet, the lichen is soft and pillowy and in a state of slow growth.

You will receive this very sculpture pictured at the right. And when you purchase this sculpture, I will send you more detailed instructions.
