I am thrilled to have found the perfect way to blend my love of gardening and crafting - a little late in life, but better late than never.

When I discovered the art of leaf casting, I thought “I want to do that” without realizing that it would soon become an obsession. Having cement on hand for making leaf castings, I thought I would buy a mold or two and make a few critters to display along with my leaves. That mushroomed as well.

I love what I do and there is never enough time or space for all the projects I would like to tackle.

Leaf Castings
A leaf casting is made by applying cement to the back side of a leaf, letting it dry, and then peeling the leaf off to reveal the detailed “impression” that is left in the cement. A bed of sand can be used to shape the leaf before casting for making bowls, birdbaths, etc. You can find more of my leaf castings at my Hark Creations website.

Garden Statues
My garden statues cast in molds that I purchased or made myself from vintage statues that I restored. I take great pains to make the best quality castings possible, and “bring them to life” (my favorite part) with exterior grade paints and sealers.

I hope you enjoy my “creations” as much as I have enjoyed making them for you.
