your totems are awesome! I'm so intimidated! I've been collecting glass, but everytime I try to put them together, I end up taking them apart because I don't like it....sigh.....someday....

I love your "pot" people! I particularly like the dark totem on the bottom because it's so unique.

Since I will hopefully have a garden soon, I have been collecting some glass pieces to make totems. Maybe I'll be able to show pictures of my own soon. Thanks for the inspiration! Your creations are always spectacular!

That is some very creative work. I like the feeder with the double dish top, it's different. The pot people look like you are at a show, if so how much do you sell them for? They are super cute.

Thanks, all of you. Yes, I was at a show in July. I priced the totems from $26 - $28, $32 for pot people. $14 for stakes. I have sold them for more at some shows. As high as $52 for large bird baths.
I've decided I'm going to give up this hobby for selling as of November. There is a 4 day craft bazaar at that time. Did real well last year. My husband is getting tired of the LARGE stock of glassware I have scattered over my workroom. I figure I'll be ready for another addiction by then. I'm won't give up garden art and other various crafts....just the totems, etc. except for my own use. Might try mosaics and stained glass. I have boxes of stained glass that was given to me and I haven't gotten up the nerve to try it.

Cool totems . . . I haven't ventured into glass yet. I too have a stock of ceramic ware stashed for projects. So far the hubby is very supportive. Maybe because I've sold the pieces. Good luck with your future projects. Look forward to seeing them.
