Brown Squirrel Plant Tender Water System Vintage Mold Art Glaze
This ceramic brown squirrel is designed to be used as a Plant Tender or Water Spike. It is made of ceramic earthenware and glazed in a rich brown art glaze. This plant tender is cast using a vintage mold that is no longer available. He is unique in design and a great utility item for gardeners and plant enthusiasts.
Ceramic Plant tenders are used to maintain soil moisture of potted house plants or flower container, it can be used for plants in indoors or outdoors. Not only do they help avoid over watering house plants plant tenders help add a little accent to plants.
The squirrel plant tender measures:
• 6 1/4 inches tall overall (5 inches without head)
• 2 1/2 inches wide
• 2 inches deep.
The head is removable so the remaining body can be filled with water. The opening at top of the body is approx. 3/4 of an inch in diameter, the drainage spike that is inserted into the soil is approx. 2 1/2 inches long.
Great to use if you are away for short periods of time.
Each plant tender is made of ceramic slip using a vintage plaster casting mold. All pieces are kiln fired to a temperature close to 2000 degrees. Each squirrel tender is glazed with a food safe glaze and fired a second time to mature the glaze. Each tender is unique in design. I have created a large collection of plant tenders for everyday use. Not only are they functional they also add decorative color and character to any setting.
