I call this garden sculpture "Specimen 47" for absolutely no particular reason. It was a number that came to mind and has no significance whatsoever.
This sculpture is really neat. I like it. I went to your link and saw your other works. You are very creative. Thank you for sharing. - Marylee
LOVE it, is that concrete dye? Niiiiiiice....
Cool! Looks like a real mushroom.
I think it will look very interesting in the garden,came out nice & like the bottom part too. Jan
Very nice and an interesting piece for the garden. Did you dye it with coppras?
Will look great mingled in your gardens...watchin' for Speciman 48. Love it! Jeanne S.
Inspires me to make a shroom for my Gnome garden bed, you Gotta have a shroom or two with gnomes around!!!
This looks so awesome!! I love the rich colors & the texture!
Very interesting specimen! I'm also interested in how you got those great colours!
Sorry Jeanne S but here are a few I just finished (Specimen 52 & Specimen 23 LOL). What I'm doing now is cementing the mushrooms in the pots to make them into complete sculptures.
Since they will be in a protected area I'm not worried about the finish. One thing I have learned: do not seal the bottom leave it unfinished so the pot can "breathe."
I really like these two specimen. - Marylee
Those are wonderful! I didn't know about not sealing the bottom...learn something new every day! Also like all the texture in your 'shrooms & colors! Thanks! Here was my shot at them last yr...but your "pot angle" really makes them unique! TFS! Jeanne S.
Nice, I like the color. I made them in smaller bowls lined with a plastic bag so I could use the left-over cement from some other project. For the stems I used a paper towel center roll and a small diameter scrap metal rod for sticking them in the ground. The plastic bags leave behind nice impressions. I decided to make a complete sculpture from them because many of my pots were getting destroyed by the winter freeze-thaw cycle. I think they turned out okay.
Unique and beautiful.
I like yours too Jeanne.
