SMALL LEAF TABLETOP BASE
Sizes vary from:

Bamboo Plywood
(see photo #5, bamboo is light, walnut is dark)
5 x 8" - 1
6 x 8" - 4

Black Walnut Plywood
5 1/4 x 7" - 1
7 x 7" - 1

If you are ordering a leaf that the base will ship with, I will find a base that will best work with your leaf.

If you have previously ordered a leaf, please provide me with the leaf number (and/or dimensions) so I can choose an appropriate base.

Leaf Bases will NOT be sold to anyone who has not purchased a leaf already.

Wood and metal base, faux ivy/plant, ribbon (satin white, unless you'd prefer another color of which I have several. Tell me what you'd like as I may have it...)

Leaf Bases are for indoor use only, they are not sealed for Exterior use. Bottomside of base has pads to protect furniture.

Ultra deep bowls may not work well with bases unless significantly larger than the leaf (due to tipping if bowl is filled).

~~~~~~~~~~~

SHIPPING: PRIORITY(m) (does not fit in Priority Small boxes)
Should not affect shipping rate with an ordered leaf. If it does, I'll let you know.

Shipping rate below is based on the assumption that someone may order a base alone. I will credit shipping appropriately if ordered with a leaf.

I SHIP ALL ITEMS MONDAY, WEDNESDAY AND FRIDAY WITHIN 24 hours of your order.
(Most times I will attempt to ship your item the same day for both postal and Fedex shipping).

Please note that shipping is based on safe delivery not simply fast delivery.
Box sizes allow plenty of padding space and unfortunately size affects shipping costs more than weight.

MULTIPLE LEAF SHIPPING:

More than one item ordered will become Fedex ground shipping due to limited box size.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

All of my leaves are cast using LIVE leaves, hand-painted and each TOTALLY one-of-a-kind!
Each standing bowl comes with a 20" pole so you can position it above your flowers or shrubs!
Included with every leaf is a bag of birdseed, gems and candles with instructions and a pole.

I NEVER include an invoice or price tag with a leaf purchase.
If you are sending a gift, please let me know what message you would like on the card!

Sizing indicates the largest dimension for correct shipping (all rounded to 1/2").


THE PROCESS:

This piece was made using a LIVE leaf cast in fine cement which captures every detail thus creating a "fossil."

The cement-colored "fossil" is then painted and sealed in a special clear sealer which creates a glass-like surface to show off the colors.
The sealer also protects it from UV and water. My pieces are meant to hold water and will stand up to rain and sun - but never freezing 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.


BIRD, BEE, BUTTERFLY BATH or BIRD FEEDER:

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.

To use your piece as a bee bath, put some pea gravel (pretty colors without the sharp corners) in the bath for the bees to stand on.
To use it as a butterfly bath, put sand in the bottom of the bowl with water just slightly higher than the sand.

SOME OF MY ETSY REVIEWS:

"Beautiful leaf and the birds love it! .... I have received countless compliments on these pieces!"

"I bought this birdbath as a last minute present for my parents who love watching the birds in the backyard. It's out there with the birds now, glistening in the sun. We love that it was cast from an actual leaf and the colors are brilliant. Thank you!"

"Wow, what a beauty! The colors are exceptional. I placed this example of Jackie's artistry in a rock garden between two large cacti. The extra large size of the leaf fits perfectly with the scale of the plants around it. It will hold birdseed for winter and it will turn into a birdbath in spring. Jackie put a lot of effort into carefully packing the leaf for shipment with recyclable materials. The leaf was shipped quickly and in perfect condition. Thank you, Jackie, for sharing your artistry with me."
"Beautiful work!!! The colors were even more vibrant in person. It's a gift for my Mom and I can't wait to watch her open it."

"My Dad loved this for his Father's Day present! Great customer service and a wonderful product"

"Hands down one of the most beautiful things I've ever purchased. Jackie is lovely, she's super easy to work with and her work is stunning. I purchased these as a gift and she packaged everything so carefully and made sure that I received it in plenty of time. An absolute joy to work with and I can't describe how beautiful these pieces are. I will be back!"

CUSTOM ORDERS:

"A beautiful garden piece. Artist worked with me to customize both the design and specialized installation for our deck rail. VERY pleased. Thanks so much."

"Absolutely stunning! It was a pleasure working with you. I'm so glad I found you, and that you were willing to work with me to create this custom fountain. We'll be enjoying it for many years to come. Thank you!!"
