Home of The Mighty Morel and More! Check out all our Morel Sizes and Colors. With over 20 years of mushroom hunting, we decided to put our passion into a creation. Inspired by so many shapes and sizes, we now have an well over 10 sizes in morel mushrooms and a variety of other mushrooms, Oyster mushrooms, Trumpet Mushrooms, Chanterelles, Button and of course the Amanita! Yikes!

We first hand made them from clay, then went through 4 dremells, and various drill bits, and created one of a kind pieces with varying ridges, veins, depth and contours. We then stained, painted stems and sealed to withstand exposure from sun and rain.

WE have attached them to walking sticks, made ornaments for christmas trees, wreaths, centerpieces for a woodland party, wedding arrangements, bottle stops, keychains... the list goes on!!

Incorporate the mushrooms into a garden bed, a fairy garden, or just set on a mantle or coffee table.

Please do reseal your mushrooms with a clear spray paint each year to help prlonge integrity


Koi are a symbol of Love and friendship, Of advancement and determination and Yes Good fortune! I created these as my love for my Koi pond. My Koi pond was created over 25 years ago and finally thought I’d create a few life like sculptures that I could hang above my headboard and then I wanted more! After a year of research and more research and a graveyard of resins and mold that I did not find acceptable I finally found a system I loved and would work with this application. I created a mold and laid up an exterior grade Durastone resin and created multiple castings and then airbrushed and hand painted them to look like the variety of Koi in my pond. Hues of Yellows, Blues, Red, Orange, Grey and Black are all incorporated and One of A Kind! I then sealed them and scattered them around my landscape beds for a splash of color and then indoors I hung a Feng shui black and white YIN YANG , then another wall a “Run” of Koi fish swimming up my wall, and Another situated on my coffee table. OK maybe I overdid it but I love them! And I do have a couple I filled with foam and “float” in my streambed….I need to see how this will compromise the piece for being in water….But I gotta test it before I recommend it!! Its only been a couple months and all looks ok but Id really like to see what happens in a year

After I created the mold, I layup the mold with an exterior grade Durastone Resin to about 3/8” thick and allowed to cure overnight. I then prime and drill a wall hanging tab on the backside. Ready to paint! The Resin is extremely expensive.... so that they can be placed indoors or out.


People ask Why I just don’t cast them solid?….welp, I did one and the amount of material I used was so outrageous and one would need to remortgage a home to pay for the material cost This is a very Expensive product. Plus the weight would probably bow the drywall…Not! But close

How Do I paint them to look so cool? More secrets revealed
As each one is handpainted and airbrushed, there will be slight variations as each is one of a KIND. I use exterior grade airbrush paints and exterior grade latex enamels I then seal them with Rustoleum Clear gloss.


Please Check back frequently as we do attend several shows/art festivals where I do deactivate many items.

Thank you for following me as I discover new fun and crazy ideas to incorporate into each item.

Additional policies and FAQs
NOTE: Please be advised that many of the items are adorned with natural and handmade pieces i.e. acorns, moss, dried berries, shells,beads, keys, clay pieces etc...all that can be dislodged if handled incorrectly.

Unfortunately in life...accidents can happen. Rough handling can cause some pieces to become dislodged. I find that Super Glue in the Gel form works best. If it appears that it was damaged beyond a normal quick fix..i.e." the box arrived damaged and the door is broken off" Then we can arrange a claim with the post office.

Please treat each piece with the same tender loving care that I incorporate into each piece.
